IHE Editors have again to acknowledge with grateful thanks the 

kind assistance of their many correspondents who have favoured 
them with valuable contributions. . 

Among these the Ajlmer Pedigree, contributed by Colonel Aylmer, 
and the Torkington Pedigree by Mr. Everard Green, P.S.A., Somerset 
Herald, are both received with thanks. The lengthened contributions 
by Mr. George Grazebrook, F.S.A., with a Grazebrook bookplate, and 
shewing the family's descent from 1065, with the pedigree from 
William de Busli I., are noticeable, likewise the Herries Pedigrees 
by Mr. D. C.. Herries, and that of the Lewen family by Mr. H. E. 
Leighton. The Huguenot Pedigrees contributed by Mr. H. Wagner, 
r.s.A., are much esteemed by Huguenot families, both in France and 
England. The Smj-tliies family is fully exemplified by Major Sinythies, 
and the Rushworth Pedigree, with arms from a family Bible, and anno- 
tations by the Eev. Cecil E. Smith, is brought up to date ; likewise the 
Pedigree of Buckeridge from 1524, contributed by Mr. A. Stephens Dyer, 
and that of the Fuller Pedigree from 1598. The Bor Pedigree by 
Colonel E. J. Bor of Holland, and communicated by Mr. J. F. Fuller, is 
also worthy of attention by our readers. The Registers of Papworth 
Everard from 1565-1691 were for the first time published.

The following to the Editor from George Grazebrook, Esq., F.S.A., accom-

plate herewith ^iven : — 

-r-^EAR Sir, 

In the Fourth Series of "Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica," Vol. L, 
p. 257, dated 18 Angnsfc 1905, I ventured to take upon myself the prophet's 
mantle — a garment which is always more or less lined with anxiety ; and so 
I think I may now be allowed to boast myself a little! I trust your Readers 
will compare the Plate now submitted to their criticism with Miss Lawson's 
work of five years ago. As then pointed out, the highest and most difficult part of 
line-engraving is texture," so taking this quality alone, let us go over it point by 
point. The Indian palm has foliage which is most peculiar, smooth and soft to 
look at, but hard and strong and thin and crackley — more like Court plaster than 
any other substance I can think of ! I have studied engraving closely for over sixty 
years, and cannot understand with what magic touch Miss Lawson has been able to 
convey all these characteristics. I think it was mostly by the exquisite drawing. 
Bear's head, bristly on the face and great tufts of fur at the back ; Helmet true as 
steel ; Mantling soft as silk. The old proverb declares " there is nothing like 
leather," but these books clearly are bound in crushed morocco ! 

You consider the names of the several coats interesting. Of course an atchieve- 
ment is a selection made up of such quarterings, in the order of their dates, as will 
together form a pleasing picture. Nos. 1, 2, 3, and 4 are the arms consecutively 
borne by the direct male line from the present back to 1065. No. 5 is Milward, 


I am, Dear Sir, 

Yours faithfully, 

Geo. Grazebrook.

We have mentioned (Vol. III., p. 3G8) that Robert de Bush maiTied about 
1165 the sister of WiUiam Pacranel AYe now come to this very interesting record 
of a trial in the Pipe Roll 2 Ric. I. (1191): " Robt. de Busei R.C. de x m pro hnaa 
recogn feod ij mil. de maritado uxoris sue, sororis Willi PaineUi, unde habet Carta, 
ipi Willi, et quod id WiUs ei deforciat. In thes. m et debet G m et di Yorkshire. 
De plac foreste p Arnisu de XeviH et Rogm de Hoveden," and the same entry occurs 
as still pending on Pipe Roll 7 Ric. 1. (1195-6). I cannot find the Records 
of trial. , , 

My other references are " Proceedings of the Archjeological Institute at York, 
1846," whicl) is ^Ir. Thomas Stapleton's Hist, of Holy Trinity Priory," p. 118. 
Eruisius de Nevill and Roger de Hovedon were Justices Itinerant m Yorkshire m 
1185 (Eyton's "Itinerary of Henry 11.," p. 265), and ngain in 1187 (p. 281). 
Plantagenet Harrison's ""Notes from the Plea Rolls," vol. iv., p. 1060, indexed at 
the Record Office, but they could not find the original trial for me ; and from what 
I now know, I think probahJy it never came into Court, as William Payuell was then 
in the hands of Josceus the Jew of York. And in 10 Ric. I. (1198-9) Pipe Roll, 
he owed a fine for 12 bovates of land in Hooton Paynell, taken into the King s 
hands on the death of Josceus, whose pledge it had been for a long time. And 
Mr. Stapleton gives a long list of debts owing by William Paynell from the Pipe 
Roll of 3 John (3 May 1201 to 22 Mav 1202). Evidently he was a rumed man, 
and died during the 5 Joh'is, when his" entailed estates came to his two daughters 
Frethesant and Isabel. Since Mr. Stapleton also was unable to find any further 
records of this trial, I, too, must abandon the search. 

Robert, son of Roger de Gresbroc, had two sons, Adam, who succeeded his father 
in these estates ; but it will be more distinctly shewn if I at this place clear away 
his second son, Bartholomew^ de Gresbroc (Fam. C, Gen. 5), who was born about 
1170. He left Yorkshire, and about 120J:— 14 was subinfeuded by Robert de 
Grendon T. in the estates at Shenston, co. Stafford. It is not usual to say anything 
•about money payments at so early a date; the gersnma'' paid in hand is only 
occasionally mentioned until we come to charters of some 30 or 40 years afterwards. 
At this early date " possession " seems to have been usually considered sufficient, 
with the charter stipulating the services due. I think it probable that some con- 
spicuous law suit mav have occurred which made it obviously better to declare in 
charters the consideration for which subinfeuding had been granted, and thus 
establish more completely the position of tenants since they had paid for their 

As this " gersuraa " is a supposition for which I am entirely responsible, I should 
like to submit a few instances. In Domesday Book [claims in Yorkshire, fo. 373, 
col. 1], William Malet bouijht 7 carucates of the lands of Sprot in Sand-Hutton in 
Bossall pmsh for x mark^s of silver. Now we must suppose that these lands were 
responsible for knight services, and that Sprot had " subinfeuded " Malet, and con- 
tioued himself to be chief lord under the feudal customs. In Pipe Roll 1130-1, 
Oxfordshire, Robert owes " cccc. m arg de Gersoma pro Comitatu habend," and 
Essex and Herts, " Wilt, de Aeinsford R.C. de c. m arg de Gersoma pro Comitatib} 

• Communicated by Geo. Grazebeook, Esq., F.S.A. — continued from Vol. III., p. 370, 



habenav. annis these two were for the purchase of the Sheriffdom, an appomtment 
of profit. So I now <rive a plain straightto.^ard charter o lands ft-om Hai Mb 
3759 beincr the original Cbartnlaryof Blyth Pnorv [pencil folio 62"] : I. iH hi 
Eicheri de°Blida give to Adam de Legerton 1 acre & 1 Rood, ako one half acre of 
land." The rent was Id. venrly on Christmas Day. " Et pro hac donacione he 
said Adam ''ave me ij» & vj^ de Gersiima." Unfortunately I cannot establish the 
date of this^docnment, but snch a declaration of the whole transaction becomes quite 
usual in the thirteenth century. • -ui. i.^ 

1 c^ve another instance, because it is interesting, but endless cases might be 
found" " Eichi de Courcv by the petition & concession of Alice my wife have given 
to Jordan de Fouiches 3 parts of the vill of Bescoby (co. Leicester) by the service 
of 1 knight. But for this donation & concession the said Jordan gave to me x 
marks"! a horse valued vij marks, by the hands of Helyas de Salteby, who is a 
carcei er of the same fief. And the same Jordan, for this concession gave to Alice 
^y wirx niLks and one golden ring bv the hand of Robert of the Cross of 
Bin<.ham." The date is about lUO. (Chnrtulary of Tiitbury Priory fo. 8o .) 
Thi? is the same Saltebv which is mentioned in the foundation ot Blytlie Abbey 
(se-rVoh II. 7 315, also Vol. III., p. 20), and Mr. Stapleton, in his History of 
- Holy Trinity, York," shews how de Courcy came into possession of it. (Arch«ol. 

'"BSi'lnew de'GrXtind son of Robert, son of Roger III., seems to have

which William is also required to pay in O.xfordsliire, shewing that he hold lands m

amota est in staff." ^ ^ j i • i j„ 

I give this to shew that de Brai still held his Oxfordshire lands. 
He was in full possession of Shenston in 1166, as the son and heir of Tanetinus de 
Bray, who was brother and heir of Richard de Bray, who held the uianor o & leii- 
Rton before 1127. Henry de Oilli, who was "Constable to the King from 1136 
toTlS9 sold the vardship of William son of Tauetine de Bray of Shenston ; and, while 
till nsin- th^t'^ of Constable, confirmed to him his father's manor of Shenstone 
f" S H 0 " vol iii , pp. 197-8). So Tanetinus had died, and Wilham the son had 
come of a-e within those three years. The father of Tanetinus, Luvellus de Bray, 
waTan Oxfordshire knight holding under Nigel de Oilli, and is found witnessing 
Their charters, and was alive 1074 to 1112. (See my Shenston Charters, " Staffo d- 
shire Historical Collections," vol. xvii., p. 239.) A\ de Bray was su 
alive in 1213 (" S. H. C," vol. iii., p. 161). And as ,t is now proved that the 
blood of De Brai and de Grendon have both come down to the de Gresbrokes, I 
give the following most extraordinary Protest addressed to the King's Justices ! 
f found it in the Bodleian Library (Oseney Charters, Xo. 249), and it has never, I 
think, been printed. I therefore translate it as a curiosity :— 

"To the Justices of the Lord tlie King. Walteriis de Tiwa greeting know ye 
that Robert de Oilli, lord of the mauor of Sencstan, he d within his manor and gave 
a certain membrane of that mauor, by name Stanhale, to Hugo de J''^^; f 
fathwof my father for his service-before any ancestor of William de Biai hdd 
anything within the manor of Senestan. But the same Hugo, grand ather of my 
father, by the previous concession of his aforesaid lord Rob de O.Ui, gave that 
membrane of Stanhale in charity to the house of Oseney, which the same Rob. de 
Onn had founded, before any ancestor of William de Brai had anything within the 
manor of Senestan. The canons of the said house hold the same tenement until 



this day without any service, which they make therefor. Therefore the aforesaid 
"William unjustly oppresses the said canons and their men for the aforesaid tene- 
ment. I pray you earnestly, by the will of God, that ye make this so that the 
charity of my ancestors may remain safe and without vexation to the aforesaid 
canons. Yalet." 

This protest was no doubt instigated by Oseuey Abbey, but the family of de 
.Tiwa were large Oxfordshire tenants of de Oilli, and Walter was delighted to 
expi'ess their jealousy at the preference shewn to the de Brais, which had been 
smouldering for four generations. There are several suits and a final concord 
between William de Brai and the Abbey, settling their disputes. (See " S. H. C," 
vol. xvii., p. 246, etc.) 

Robert de Grendon I. married, about 1180-5, Avicia de Bray, and had iii frank 
marriage mills and lands in Shenston, and was still alive in 1213. He was son of 
Richard de Grendon, and conjointly they confirmed the grant of Gopsal Church, 
given by Earl Fei-rcrs, to Mereval Abbey, and this was confirmed by King Henry II. 
and by Lucius III., who was Pope 1181-5. They afterwards combined in a grant 
to the same Abbey lands in Mora and Goppesiiall, in which charter William de Brav 
appears as a witness; and in 1190-1 a final concord passed between Miravall Abbey 
and Richard de Grendon as to the advowsou of the church of Grendon (Xichols' 
■ Leicestershire," vol. iv., p. 854). I have given the pedigi-ee of de Brai and 
Grendon in the " Staff. Historical Collections," vol. xvii., p. 294. Two of Avicia's 
brothers were priests, and the third, Robert, witnesses about 1190 ami then dis- 
appears entirely, and the heirs of Avicia succeeded to the whole of her father's 
estates at his death. 

I consider it is proued that Bartholomew de Gresbrok, some years after 1209, 
married Edith, dan. of Robert de Grendon L, and got in frank marriage with her mills 
in Shenston worth xv.5. yearly rent and other lands, and that Robert de Grendon JL, 
w^ho was alive on 7 April 1269 and dead before 1273, had during his lifetime, by 
some strange confusion, alienated these mills worth xv s. and other lands which his 
■father had previously given to Edith, sister of Robert IL, and appai-ently given 
them a second time to his other sister Alesia with her husband Pldlip de Leija. 
Upon the death of Robert II. all this came to light, and hence the five fines paid so 
hurriedly for a writ of Pone for a plea mort d'ancestor, and all between 18 Sep. and 
the 20 Nov. 1275 — all within two months and one day — versus Ralph de Gren- 
don II., son of Robert de Grendon I., and to be taken before the Justices Itinerant 
Henry de Montforti and Solomon Rochester. The Legas or Leyes put forward 
their claims April 1268, and it was still going on Hilary Tei-m, 22 Edw. I., m. 27 
dorso (January 1294), also in Easter Term of that year. Coram Rege, m. 44 dorso. 
("Staff. Hist. Collections," vol. iv., p. 170; vii., pp. 10, 15; xvii., p. 256.) 
Scholastica, the widow of Robert de Grendon II., had also claimed her dower upon 
the rent of these mills and lands in 1273. (" S. H. C," vol. vi., pp. 60-61.) In 
my Staffordshire Chartulary (" S. H. C," vol. xvii., p. 254), by Charter No. 14 
Philip de Lega surrenders to Robert de Grendon II. this mill, cum omnibus per- 
tinenciis, which had been given to him with Aleys his wife in free marriao:e, but the 
exact date I could not fix. There are also several other contributory suits bearing 
upon. it. From which accumulated evidences it is plain that Bartholomew did 
marry Edith, daughter of Robert de Grendon L, and the elder sister of the above- 
named Alesia. 

Anyone who reads the petition of Robert de Grendon III., which I printed 
**S. H. C," vol. xvii., p. 297, must conclude that his father and - grandfather, the 
two Ralphs, were simpletons and under the complete control of their relations. 

jOn looking up the Assize Rolls, No. 1230, 4 Edw. I. (29 January 1276), at the 
Record Office, I found the heading is " Placita coram henr. de Monteforti," and

I frankly confess that, after years of examination, I refuse to accept any eariy 
peig Tw^ch L not pr'ovided\vith dates and references to where the proofs^^^^^^^ 
be s?en ! This is a great innovation I know, as such skeletons fiave pa^^ed ourreut 
for Juries, but now they are quite inadmissible The records are collected to.

had au existence he must appear upon these K«''^ th durin- 

. charters, pleas, and dooameats may be lost or astray. I have met with ,ach daun„ 



my searches — sometimes a bundle of title-deeds which had not been restored when 
mortgages were paid off I But all taxes and fines and payments are recorded, and 
no head of a family, above a certain status, ever escaped from them, or else the 
reason is declared, which often tells ns more than we should otherwise learn ! 
Prove his existence and relationship before you dare to inchide liini as a step in the 
family stairs, otherwise he may he the mythical residuum of a dream — equally diffi- 
cult eit:her to assert or deny ! 

It is on this account that I have omitted— rejected — several possibilities and 
probabilities, and what family legends there may be. Future students, with their 
greater advantages of rescarcli, will I know point to the confirmations then dis- 
covered—of some of them— and will blame me for this silence ; but I prefer to 
leave my work, like that famous Castle of Wark, small and compact and quite im- 

Following the sequence of dates, I am still engaged upon the history of Robert 
son of Roger (Family C, Gen. 4), and now take up his elder son Adam de Gresbroc 
(Gen. 5), who died during the lifetime of his father, but in whose lieirs the male 
line continued for two generations, after which it became extinct in coheiresses. 
Adam was born about 1170, and married shortly before 1200 Dionysia, the eldest 
daughter of William (T.) and Florentia de London, who held the manor of Tinsley 
in Yorkshire, also lands in Notts and Derby and in Wilts. (See Notes on^Inquis. 
post-mortem August 12-19, y?o.s^.) He acquired with his wife half a knight's fee in 
Tinslev, held l^y Ser jean toy. 

This said William de London (I.) died in France very soon after their marriage, 
and we find (Rot. Chartarum in Turr. Asservati, folio 156^) that on 5 August 
7 Job'is (1205) the custody of the lands and heirs of William de London (I.) of 
Tinsley until the full age of the heir, together with the marriage of the heirs^ and 
of Florentia, who was the wife of the said William, was granted to Robert de Veteri 
Ponte, which Robert was a cousin of Adam de Gresbrok, and at that time Sheriff 
of Notts and Derby, and we have seen in Vol. IIL, p. 255, that the Gonstableship 
of the Honour and Castle of Tickhill had been conferred on the same Robert, who 
was jure uxoris Chief Lord of all those original 7i knights' fees of Domesday. 

On the death s.p. of her brother William de London (II.) (Inq. p.m. 1249) 
Dionysia the wife of Adam was declared to be in her representative the elder of 
the two coheiresses. Several suits at law will be abstracted when we come to the 
next generation, which declare the estates and circumstances, and these can then 
be introduced with more distinctness than here, also with the correct sequence of 
dates. Adam received with his wife some portion of Tinsley, which manor was 
counted as one knight's fee, of which he and his wife held half a knight's fee. In 
his younger days he resided in Rotherham, and was then recorded as Adam or 
Edde de'^Roderham, and is also called de Gresbrok after his father. Hunter " S. 
Yorksh.," ii., pp. 28, 32, Flower and Glover Visitation 1563-4, and all other 
authorities also call him de Londoner, but I don't think they held any other 
de London lands until after 1248, also jure uxoris de Tinsley, which is correct, as 
they had the principal manor house as well as half the manor, and his father 
continued to hold Gresebroc ; but I should like to point out that in those early 
times the parish of Rotherham was very extensive, and included the chapelries of 
Greasbrok and Tinsley and the townships of Brinsworth, Catcliffe, Kimberworth, 
,Orgreave, Rotherham,''and a part of Dalton, and so it would be possible perhaps to 
find liim with any of those names, and the reasons for the above three varieties at 
different dates are obvious! In Vincent's Yorkshire Collections in the College of 
Arms, vol. iii., p. 78, his coat of arms is given as Arg., a chevron between 3 Wolfs 
fieads erased Gu., being, as I suppose, the seigneurial coat for the manor of Tinsley, 
and his ancient hereditary heraldic bearings were Argent^ two bars Sable. 

In one of the lawsuits referred to above it is declared that Adam had already 
received his share" of the London estates, and we shall presently see it proved 
that that was the gift with his wife of half a knight's fee in Tinsley, as mentioned 
above, and hence his use of that surname, since lie and his wife now held that 
portion by serjeantcy for themselves and their heirs in tail 


When we come to Henry, son and sole heir of Adam, I mean to giye the 
pedio-ree of de London with a few addidoiial preuves and so shew how tlie blood 
rRoger de Busli III. (1131) had descended through Beatrice, the oi.lj ch d oj 
Roger and Eune, together with Bane's estates, and were then ^'^^^1?^^^ 
de Loudres (L), and so came to the represencatives of our Adam ^^e^^.^'^^^^^^^^,^; ^ 
conibinincr the two lines in him: and I will continue the descent down a litUe 
lateiS so al to shew the bearing of these lawsuits which we have to detail when we 
come to the next generation, Henry (Gen. 6), the son of Adam 

Mr Hunter (" S. Yorksh.," ii,, p. 28) mentions the descent of these lands and 
repeat tlfe original curious tenure as given in Vol. III., p. 306. In t^^e Close R^^^^^^ 
vol i p. 339\ in a List of Magnates of Yorkshire who were readmitted to the 
KinX Peace by wric dated 2 November 1217 and addressed to the Sheriff we find 
A^m fit RobeL Adam died quice a young man after 1228 and -^^^^ ^e year 
1^0, and long before the lawsuits began, -^i^^, followed on the d^ 
mother's only surviving brother, whose inq. p.m (Bsceat o3 Heni> IIL, oo 
is dated 23 August 1219, and abstracted in the London pedigree Heni} his son 
was then under ao-e (Wilts Curi^ Regis Case in 1249), that is, he was born 
I228 but xactly when I cannot declare! If as Mr. Hunter supposed a^nd 
it seems to me correctly, he may have been only two years old at his father Adam s 
death in or about 1230. 

{To he continued.') 


Can any one say whether there was any relationship between this family and 
that from which the famous builders of the Royal Navy were descended ?

'€\)t ^^Inm JTanuIp of €ncjlanl3 m\tj 

AYLMER is a purely Saxon name and is the Norman reading of A|7elmer, 
the second letter being a diphthong, the 0 of the Greek being unknown to the 
Normans, and having some similarity to their letter y they so understood it ; and 
in all old English books the word " the," Saxon " j7e," is written "ye." Athelmer 
thus became Ayelmer, and by dropping the then superfluous "e" became Aylmer. 
The meaning of the name is " the more noble " — Athel=noble, mer=more. In 
early Saxon times names beginning with " Athel " were given nearly always in the 
Royal Family. The heir to the throne was called the Atheling, i.e. " most noble," 
and the other members were " noble " = athel, with some addition. 

The Ayhner family of England and Ireland come from the Saxon Royal House, 
being direct descendants of King Ethelred I., the elder brother of King Alfred 
the Great. King Etheli'ed left two children, too young to reign, and the crown 
-was given to their uncle Alfred. King Alfred mentions them very kindly in his 
will, leaving them considerable properties. They were "Athelme" and "Atliel- 
wold." On King Alfred's death the younger, who the Saxon chroniclers stated 
was not of so contented a disposition as his elder brother, claimed the throne, and 
after considerable fighting with King Edward was killed in battle. Athelme 
(so written in the King's will, that is without our final "r") was Earl of Wiltshire, 
and carried King Alfred's offerings to Rome. He died a.d. 898, aged 40. The 
descent from him to the time of the Norman Cuncjuest is as follows : — 

'\ . Kincr Ethelred I.=F 

Athelme, Earl of Wiltshire. 

Athelwold, killed. 

^thelstan, Earl Of the East Angles, i.e. Norfolk,=r Alfwen. 
Suffolk ; called the Half King ; ob. 967. 1 ob. 983.

Edgari;" ob. 993. 

Athelward, the Historian, ob. 1016=p-Sthelfleed. 


Athelmer, Earl of Cornwall and Devon=pAh'ida. 

Hence Aylmers. 

* Compiled by the late Captain James Evans Feeke Aylmeb, and communicated, with 
jBome additional Notes, by Colonel F. A. Aylme;r. 



The following are two or three notes regarding the foregoing :— 
Alfwen, the wife of Earl or Duke Athelstan, nursed and educated King Edgar. 
This King, hearing of the beauty of Elfrida, only daughter of Ordargus, Earl of 
Cornwall, sent Alfwen's son Ethelwold to see her and report to him. Instead, 
Ethelwold married her and was put to death by the King (see account in history). 
When Ordagns her father died, the King, to make some amends, gave the earldom 
of Cornwall to Ethelwold's great-nephew " Athelmer." Athelward's chronicle is in 
all libraries and should be read. 

In a charter to Abingdon Monastery King Ethelred in 993 recognizes the 
relationship in blood of Earl Athelmer. King Echelred II. was son of Elfreda, 
"H^ec proc patarin descriptio terrarum facta est per admonitionem ordulpbi 
avunculi mei atque Athelmari consanguinatate mihi Conglutinate si"— "My blood 

The proper Saxon title of rulers of large districts was " Alderman," but later, 
from mixing with continental nations, they are always described as Earls or Dukes, 
and Earl Athelmar is in some records described as one, sometimes the other. He 
was called " the great," and was very munificent to churches. He built several, 
but in this short notice I will only mention one— he built and endowed the 
Monastery of Eynsham in Oxfordshire. As late as the reign of King Henry VIII., 
when monasteries were suppressed, prayers were said yearly for the souls of him, 
his wife, and his son Athelward. I may, however, mention the Abbey of Arne, 
built by him because the famous iElfric, in the preface of the Book of Homilies, 
says that he, a poor monk, was brought there to teach by that nobleman Athelmer. 
This ^Ifric first translated the Bible into Euglish at request of Athelward, and 
became Archbishop of Canterbury. 

Earl Athelmer had two sons and we know of one daughter. His eldest son 
Athelward was killed by Canute. Stigand, Archbishop of Canterbury femp. 
William L, and Athelmer, Bishop of Thetford, Norfolk, are called his sons in one 
record ; both were married. Athelmer left Blofield and the properties in Norfolk 
to his children. Perhaps the Norfolk Aylmers descend from them. The celebrated 
Stigand left two sons, "Secamen" and "Athelmer." The two Bishops were, 
I believe, his nephews and not his sons. Besides Athelward there was , a son 
Athelmer, who was Earl of Cornwall until 1043, and his son Athelwin was Earl of 
the same until a.d. 1056. After this we have no record of the family for a long 
period. Before, however, shewing the connection of our family with the great 
Earl, I will quote the record of the death of Athelwin, the last Earl of Cornwall 
and Devon of our family : "a.d. 1056. Ecclesiarum amator, pauperiuni recreator, 
viduarum et pupillorum defensor, (3ppressum subventor, virginitatis custos, comes 
Athelwinis, id est Odda (Devonshire Earl) decessit, sed in monatoris Persorensi 
honorifice sepultus quiescit." The great Earl Athelraer's will is extant. 

Tradition has always given our family the descent from these famous Saxons, 
but the following will shew that the tradition is in this matter correct. After the 
Conquest, for about 100 years the Saxon clergy were not allowed to write history. 
Norman only was allowed in churches and schools, and the Norman writers seldom 
mentioned a Saxon, and then only to say something bad of him. Hence we have 
no record of that troubled time, but we have in the Harleian Manuscripts, 

VOL. IV., SERIES IV, " ^ ^ 


unearthed by me, an Aylmer pedigree, in ^hich the first Aylmer in it is described 
as " the Fovnder of Eijnsham Alley r This man lived in the fourteenth century. 
He could not have been the founder, for, as I have shewn, this abbey was founded 
in the tenth century by the great Earl. I referred the matter to Mr. Freeman, the 
Anglo-Saxon historian, and he said the word founder" was used in those days to 
describe the lineal successor of the founder, or what we would call the patron 
of the living, and Freeman allowed that a man so described must be the head of 
the family and the male representative of the founder. Now it was a man or men 
of this man's family which first went to Ireland with Strongbow, and to shew how 
the English and Irish Aylmers kept up their connections, I will further on copy 
you this Harleian Manuscript, and you will see that one Aylmer (English) in it 
married a daughter of "Richard de Legh ;" and if you look at the third Aylmer 
in our pedigree you will see that he, John Aylmer, married into the same family. 

Following the Conquest, all lands were forfeited and given to Norman lords, 
exception for the moment being made in regard to estates belonging to churchmen. 
What became of our family I know not, but some, certainly Norfolk and Suffolk, 
joined the household of the great Earl of Clare. 

At this time Wales was unconquered and troublesome, and the King of England 
gave large estates in bordering counties to gi-eat Norman lords, called°Lords li the 
Marches, provided they would repel the inroads of the AVelsh, amongst others 
the Clares and j\[ortimers, and with the former, who had lands in North Hereford- 
shire and South Shropshire, I imagine the Aylmers went, as I first find our 
ancestors in these parts, and always in connection with the de Clares, the Mortimers, 
the de Herefords, the Tyrells, and the de Leghs. 

In the will of Elizabeth de Burgh (the Lady of Clare), daughter of Gilbert 
de Clare, Earl of Gloucester, legacies are left to two of her retainers, " Sir W"^ 
Aylmer and Thomas Aylmer" (will dated 25 September 1355) ; and in will of 
Elizabeth, sister of Philippa of Haiuault, wife of King Edward IIL, mention 
is made of a Robert Aylmer. 

In 1174 Richard de Clare, Earl of Pembroke (Strongbow), conquered Ireland. 
His fleet was commanded by his Admiral, Sir Adam de^ Hereford, and the van of 
his army was commanded by Hugh Tyrrel, and the fleet was provisioned and 
equipped by Sir Hugh de Legh. No mention is made of an Aylmer, but seeing 
these three names which come together are those in our own pedigree before 
mentioned we may conclude that an Aylmer went with them ; the more so, 
as shortly after we find them together, as the following short extracts taken from 
Calendar of State Papers of Ireland shew :— 

" 1205. Witnesses to a grant of land i Walter Aylmer, Adam de Hereford, 
Eichd Tyrrell." 

" 1205 (8th John). Acquaintance to Walter Ayhner and Adam de Hereford 
and others." 

" 11*^ July 1205. Document regarding marriage of Walter Aylmer." 

There are numerous others, but above are sufficient. Whether we descend from 
this Walter Aylmer, or Stephen Aylmer, or Rudolph Aylmer, all of whom are 
mentioned as being in Ireland in the State Papers a few years after Strongbow's 
conquest, I know not, but they were of the family of Aylmer referred to as 



founders" in annexed papers as living in Korth Herefordshire, for Tyrrell, 
de Legh, and de Hereford came from there, and are constantly mentioned together 
as inhabiting this district up to the conquest of Ireland. Adam de Hereford got 
enormous estates from Strongbow, including Lyons, Donadea, and other properties 
afterwards in our family, and as he could not defend them Giraldus says he sent 
for his two brothers and others to England to share them with him, and in the 
year 1299 we find a Ralph Aylmer paying tithes to the See of Dublin. 

1299. Walter Aylmer paid on account of his lands at Tassegard. Compare 
this with No. 1 of our own pedigree, and many other similar entries of the same 
and of other Aylmers, but we are not able to connect them by regular descent with 
No. 1 on accompanying pedigree.

[From a Family Bible now in the possession of Mrs. Cecil E. Smith, with Annotations by 
the Rev. Cecil ICvax Smith, M.A., The Rectory, Titsey.] 

John Riishworch,* senior, born 25 October 1721 afc New York ; died at Cowes 
30 August 1780, and lies buried in the Church of Northwood in the Isle of Wight, 
near his wife Sarah Rushworth, who died at West Cowes 7 May 1780, aged 56 years. 
Had issue : — 

Edward Rushworth, born 17 October 1755 ; baptized 2 January 1756 at 
Kingston Church, Portsea. 

John Rushworth, born 29 January 1758 ; baptized at Kingston Church, 
Portsea; died 7 September 1793 at Hythe, near SouLhampton, and 
buried at Dibden Churchyard, near Hythe, on Thursday the 12th Sep. 

Elizabeth Rushworth,! born 6 July 1762 ; baptized at All Saints' Church, 
Southampton ; in 1781 married Mr. John Keele of Southampton, Surgeon, 
had nine children, and died 22 July 1817 at Southampton and buried 

Edward Rushworth,}: married at the Parish Church of Calborn in the Isle of 
Wight on the 27th August 1780 to Catharine Holmes, youngest daughter of the 
Rev. Leonard Troughear Holmes§ of Westover Lodge, created in 1797 Baron 
Holmes of Kilmallock, county Limerick, and had issue : — 

1. Catharine, born 16^^ November 1781 at past 3 p.m. at Afton House, Isle 

* John Rushworth, senior, was, I believe, a great-grandson of Daniel, brother of John Rush- 
worth (1607 — 1690), the compiler of the "Historical Collections," but I forget the exact degree 
of descent. 

Tablets to the memory of John Rushworth and his wife are on the walls of Northwood 
Church, Isle of Wight : — 

" In Memory of John Rushworth, Esq"", 22 years a Post Captain of His Majesty's Fleet, who 
died the 30*'' day of August 1780 in the 59*'' year of his age, and lies interred near this place." 

"Sarah the wife of John Rushworth, Esq"", Captain in the Royal Navy, died the 7"" day of 
May 1780, and lies interred near this place." 

. ; 3?|i»^i»%v of the Ru^hworths, related to the Fairfaxes and to John Rushworth, the com- 
piler of the Historical Collections," had settled in America during the dissensions between 
Charles 1. and the Parliament. When the trouble with our American Colonies began John 
Rushworth, senior, had to decide whether to give up his interests in America or become a 
citizen of the new United States and an enemy of England. This (his granddaughter told me in 
1885) undermined his health (as in the case of many others similarly situated) and hastened his 
death about the time of the declaration of Independence, His wife's name was Sarah Mayne. 
John Rush worth's (senior) death is recorded in the "Gentleman's Magazine," 1780: "At West 
Cowes, aged 58, John Rushworth, Esq., a senior post Captain of His Majesty's fleet & regulating 
the impress Service in the Isle of Wight." 

I Elizabeth Rushworth, afterwards Mrs. Keele, was the mother of Admiral Keele, and of 
Edward Keele, a midshipman, whose heroic death is mentioned in Alison's " History," and great- 
grandmother of the present Admiral John Rushworth Jellicoe, etc. 

X Edward Rushworth was a Founders' Kin Scholar of W'inchester College (and, I believe, a 
Fellow of Trinity College, Oxon). He took Deacon's Orders in the Church, and was afterwards 
M.P. for Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, and Recorder of Newport. He built Farringford and resided 
there. (It is now the residence of Lord Tennyson.) He was also afterwards M.P. (1781 
onwards) for Newport. On his election the unsuccessful candidate, Mr. John Barrington, 
petitioned the House against the validity of his return on the ground of his being in Holy 
Orders. A Select Committee was appointed to consider it. and reported that Mr. Rushworth had 
been "duly elected to serve in this Parliament." Afterwards, in order to get rid of Horne Tooke, 
an Act was passed disqualifying all the clergy of the Church of England from sitting in the 
House of Commons. This Act took effect in 1802. 

§ In Northwood Church, Isle of Wight, there is a monument to " Thomas Troughear, D.D., 
Vicar of Carisbrooke with the Chapels of Newport and Northwood annexed, and of Elizabeth his 
wife, daughter of Col. Henry Holmes, member in several parliaments for the Borough of Yar- 
mouth & L* Governor of the Isle of Wight. He died Anno 1761, aged 81 years. She died Anno

Llyfr Baglan, or The Booh of Bag! an. Compiled letween the years 1600 a7td 1Q07 by John 
Williams. Transcribed from the Original Manuscript in the Public Library at Cardiff and 
Edited by Joseph Alfred Bradney, B.A., F.S.A. London : Mitchell Hughes and Clarke, 
140 Wardour Street, W. 1910. 

This is a well arranged Work on antique paper, beginning with the pedigree of Edward III., 
shewing the descendants of his various children. The Pedigree of Brut, the first King of 
Brittaine, is followed by that of Charles the Great, King of France and Emperor of Almaigne, 
thence descending to Ph'e 3, King of Spain, and a lengthened Pedigree of " Cadwalader the last 
King of the Brittones," is carried on to the father of Henry VIL, King of England. In 
addition to the pedigrees of well known families of Wales, Monmouthshire, and Herefordshire, 
it also consists of a large number of the pedigrees of smaller gentry of those districts, many 
of which are nowhere to be found except in this book. Herein lies the value of the Woik, as it 
gives much information about the lesser landowners of the Elizabethan Period, whose names 
can only be found in deeds inaccessible to the general student. To enumerate more of the 
pedigrees is too lengthened a task, but the knowledge the original compiler of this book had 
of the ancestry of the Kings of England and Wales, the nobility and gentry, together with their 
heraldiw, is remarkable. The original MS. ends with the account of the house of Llanfoiste, 
the last being William Prise who was Sheriff in 1607. We must congratulate the Transcriber 
and Editor on the way in which the whole Work is carried out, making 346 pp. of the oldest 
pedigrees, and amplified with notes giving the known names of districts. It is, the best example 
of Welsh literature we are aware of, and ought to be in the library of every Welshman, and it 
will be invaluable to genealogists. We notice that the learned Editor attended the Levee of 
His Majesty on 1st March as Colonel of his Regiment, and that his son, Lieut. E. Bradney, of 
the Royal Engineers, was also presented on the same occasion.

A FULL and lengthened account of the Randolph Manuscript begins the present volume, giving 
the negotiations in regard to a nevv charter, 1625, and proceedings recorded at G-eneral Courts 
held up to 1670. Virginia Legislative Papers are continued, likewise Orders of the Council of 
State, from 1654 to 1656, and these are followed by Miscellaneous Colonial Documents and 
Petitions sent in between 1770 and 1779, and the Revolutionary Army Records for about the 
same period. The paper is still contitmed of Virginia Gleanings in England, communicated by 
Mr. Lathrop Withington of London ; it gives several interesting accounts and wills of persons 
residing in Virginia from 1611, including the family of Opies. In genealogy the account of the 
Brent family is still continued, likewise the Robinsons of Middlesex, etc. The whole part is 
interesting, although mostly concerned with Virginia, which can hold the first place in literature, 
though Boston is the chief town in America for collections of books.

This is another Part on Genealogy, the compiler being Mr. P. C. Rushen. It gives a summary of 
certain law terms arranged alphabetically, from Abjuration tu Yardland, varying in districts 
from 15 to 30 acres. It will be very useful to refer to in all law proceedings, from the definition 
of armiger to that of villein, wapentake, curucate and socage, terms which we frequently come 
across in old documents. 

Mr. Bernau has also published a handy quarto entitled -'Ancient Handwritings," by William 
Saunders. The work is nicely got up, and gives ample examples of Square and Rustic Capitals, 


as well as the Corsive and Minuscule forms of handwritings as used by the Romans, as well as 
the Anglo-Saxon and Lombardic hands. As characteristic of the thirteenth to the seventeenth 
centuries, the Author gives examples as also abreviations adopted during that period, and many 
are given, as well as punctuation marks and modes of making corrections. The writer then 
deals with Facsimiles with Js^otes, giving eight examples from photographs, and concluding with 
a few words of the Court and Chancery hands, shewing those from the early Tudors till the reign 
of George II. *

This present Part commences a new volume, and has as frontispiece the portrait of Cornelius 
Cornelissen Cuyler,the banker, who was unfortunately killed in Spain in a motor car July 1909. 
The first paper in the Part is entitled " Clues from English Archives," giving the wills of Peeter 
Hooker of 1639, Jobn Whale of 1609, John Reheathland of 1639, Symon Younge of 1609, all of 
America, besides several other wills of Englishmen of 1630—1637. The Church Register of the 
Walpeck Congregation from 1772 to 1791 is next given, and an ample account of the Butcher 
family from 1694 to 1726, followed by the Lineage of the Hoppe-Hoppen-Hopper family, giving 
marriages from 1797 to 1805, both continued from the previous volume, likewise a Digest of 
Essex Wills from 1.566 to 1590. The Society's Proceedings and Reviews conclude an interesting 
record of genealogical events of 1600 and 1700, which prove often valuable for reference. 

Boolis for Bevien' and Notices of Forth-coming Works should he addressed to 
Messrs. Jlitch^ll Hughes and Clarke at the Publishing Office, 140 Wardour Stree/, London. W. 


Born November 9th, 1841. Died May 6th, 1910. 

The literature of the Country has been so eloquent in every detail of his late 
Majesty's life, and this has been so reiterated in all the capitals of the ^orld, 
both in the senate and the press, that it behoves us as a genealogical Journal 
to join in all the just laudations the death of his late Majesty has originated, 
feeling convinced that his Royal successor, King George Y., will instinctively 
follow his honoured Father's gracious example, as King Edward Ylf. did in suc- 
ceeding our late Sovereign Queen Victoria. 

As Rudyard KipKng has so eloquently versed his praises, so he will pardon us 
in quoting them : 

" For on hira each, new day laid command, every tyrannous hour, 
To confront, or confirm, or make smooth some dread issue of power; 
To deliver true judgment aright at the instant, unaided 
In the strict, level, ultimate phrase that allowed or dissuaded ; 
To foresee, to allay, to avert from us perils unnumbered, 
I To stand guard on our gates when he guessed that our watchmen had slumbered; 

To win time, to turn hate, to woo folly to service, and mightily schooling 
His strength to the use of his Nations, to rule as not ruling. 
These were the works of our King : Earth's peace is the proof of them, 
God gave him great works to fulfil and to us the behoof of them." 

Among^ the many excellent reminiscences of his late Majesty we venture to 
quote the notice of The Times of May 7th : " King Edward YII. is no more. 
After an illness which was not known, even in London, to the public until the 
evening of Thursday (May 5th), he died last night a little before midnight. 
The suddenness with which it has fallen upon us makes it the more overpowering 
to us all. To the last he has shewn the courage of his Royal race, a quality which 
he has often proved he possessed in a signal degree. The swiftness and the wholly 
unexpected character of this blow will add to the pain which it will bring, not to 
his own people only, but to all England's well wishers, and to those who love peace 
throughout the world. Xo sovereign knew better how to defend the interests and 
to assert the dignity of the State he ruled."

Buckeridge— the name of an ancient family in Berkshire, who have had their 
seat at Basildon, near Reading, ever since the seventh of William the Conqueror; 
of this family all the Buckeridges in England are descended. The Estate is at 
present enjoyed by Mr. Thomas Buckeridge. Of this familv was John Buckerido-e, 
Bishop of Rochester in 1611, transferred to Ely in 1627, who had for his bearing 
In afield or two pallets heticeenfive cross-crossUts fitche'e in saltire sable. 

The above is from "The Historical, Geographical, Genealogical, and Poetical 
Dictionary"^ of Jeremy Collier (b. 1650— d. 1726), and seems to have been taken 
Irom the U ork of the Abbe :Moreri, as almost the same is given by him. Who 
was responsible for the family's arrival at Basildon, the seventh year of the 
Conqueror, is difficult to ascertain, as may be imagined. The name, however, is 
found at an early date. Felicia Bokerihc was tenant in Dunstewe, Oxon, in 1279 
Sara Bokeringg paid subsidy at Basildon in 1327, and one William Buckeruo-cr 
was Priest of Farley, Wilts, in 1360. °° 
The following pedigree is intended chieflv to correct an error made by the 
families of Blandy, Wilder, and Knapp in their claim to Founders' Kin to St. John's 
College, Oxford, through a supposed brother of Bishop Buckeridge, whose mother 
Elizabeth Kibblewhite, was kinswoman of the founder, Sir Thomas AVhite. As 
will be seen, the Thomas Buckeridge of Basildon they were really descended from 
was first-cousin to the Bishop, and the pedio-rees in Berry's Berkshire Genealo^^ies " 
Burke's "Landed Gentry," Burke's "Royal Descents and Founders' Kin '^ and 
Stacey Grimaldi's " Memoi-ials of the Knapp Family," 1828, which states them to 
be related m blood to Sir Thomas White, are entirely wrong. 

John Blandy, son of John Blandy of Purley in the parish of Chaddleworth 
Berks, was in 1733 certified by the Heralds to be related to the founder of 
St. John's. He took a Founders' Kin place, and seems to have been responsible for 
the allowed claims of Henry Wilder of Purley Hall in 1766 and Jerome William 
Knapp in 1777, as a candidate for a Founders' Kin place was only required to 
shew his descent or relationship to a former successful candidate : — 

"To all to whom these presents shall come We the Kin?s Heralds & Pursuivants 
of Arras being desired on behalf of John Blandy Commoner Civilian of St John's 
College Oxford to certify his relation to Sir Thomas Whvte Lord Mayor of London 
Anno 155-4 & Founder of St. John's College in Oxford aforesaid Do herebv Certify 
and Declare that the said John Blandy is son of John Blandy of Purley in the 
Parish of Chaddleworth in the County of Berks by Mary eldest daughter & coheir 
of Thomas Saunders of Purley aforesaid; which said Thomas Saunders married 
Mary daughter of Thomas Buckeridge of Basildon who married Elizabeth dauo-hter 
of . . . . Clark, was a son of another Thomas Buckeridge of the same place one of 
the brothers of John Buckeridge Fellow of St. John's College first Bishop of 
Rochester afterwards Bishop of Ely & related in blood to the said Founder as by 
the above written Pedigree more plainly appears. In testimony whereof we have 
hereunto aftixed the Common Seal of our Sovereign Lord George the Second by 
the grace of God King of Great Britain France & Ireland Defender of the Faith 
&c. Anno Dom. 1733."

We now come to a very interesting and curious entry in the Rot. Cancellarii 
vel Antigraphum Magni Rotuli Pipa3 3 Joh'is, 8vo. 1833, that is 1201-2, which if 
it were an ordinary Pipe Roll would give us the taxation payments due between 
18 May 1200 and 2 May 1201 ; but this is a Chancellor's antigraph or " estimate," 
and contains many unpaid balances for several previous years, all in fact that could 
be gathered in or claimed for those very disturbed times at the end of Richard I. 
and the accession of K. John. This is quite plain from many entries. Richard I. 
was an open-hearted generous man, and would listen to pleas for delayed payments, 
and so his officials allowed many to be postponed; but King John was a very 
different man, always needy, always grasping, and here we have a great many 
items due in previous years and now included for immediate recovery. I give 
a few instances selected at random. Richard I. was liberated from captivity on 
4 February 1194, and his ransom was collected by a scutage : p. 236, "Com de 
Augo (or Ewe) 3^ ^outage for Redemption of Ric. 1. ;" p. 346, " de tercio Scut. 
R' Ric;" p. 168,' "de primo Scut. R' Ric;" p. 172, ''descdo Scut. R' Ric;" 
p. 275, "pro primo Scut. ;" p. 149, " Henry fil. Com. de Auco de oblatis " (Henry 
the 7th Earl died in 1183, eight years before our antigraph, and was succeeded by 
his brother John, Vol. III., p. 19) ; p. 2S2, " John de BuUi pays for the firm of 
Scardeburgh" (he held it from 1201 to 1208, Vol. III., p. 261) ; so we see that 
payments due at many dates appear on this list ! 

Fellow students will understand quite well that the date when such commissions 
were returned into the Exchequer do not in the least represent the time of the 
facts reported ; these may extend back for many years. The King's breve shews 
only the date when the commission was issued. I have already pointed this out 
and proved it in the case of the Rotuli de Dominabus, Vol. III., p. 108, which was 
returned into the Exchequer in 1185. 

The statements given in Kirkby's Inquest extended over many years, from 1277 
to 1295, and so the various clauses include a wide range of daces" ! Such records 
as Pipe Rolls, Clause Rolls, etc., give us exact dates of each transaction, but 
lest general readers should think I am straining the importance of this point, 
I would refer them to the introduction to the Rotuli Hundredorum, which clearly 
shews the reasons for and the process of such enquiries backwards. " In con- 
sequence of the revenues from such and such Feudal returns having greatly 
diminished,^ etc.," King Edward I. issues his breve on 11 October 1274 for 
a Commission to enquire into and report upon all such fee farms of the Crown, 
withheld or understated. The process was to find out the date of the latest 
payment in full— and that might be years back— and then to ascertain what 
reasons could be advanced for the deficiency. It may be glibly suggested that the 
Sheriffs were paid to do this work, but it was not so. They were supplied with 
a list of the payments in and out for the last year, and had to collect and account 
for these. But powers to make any outside enquiry followed on the King's writ. 
A commission could demand evidences which in some cases might extend over 
many years, and such could not be enquired into without the King's mandate ! 

In this antigraph (or estimate) at p. 311 we have this very interestin"- 
payment : — °

Now to explain this. Robert de Veteri ponte was the son of William bj Matildis, 
heiress of the de Morevilles, Vol. III., p. 251, and was Sheriff of Notts and Derby 
in 1201-2, and again 1205 — 11 (7 to 12 Joh'is). He was with King John in 
France in 1202 (Fat. •! John, m. 11), and was at the battle of Mirabel, where the 
nephew of tiie King of France was taken prisoner and committed to his care, bnt 
was afterwards transferred to Hugh de Gurnay (Matthew Paris, anno 12u2, Blore's 
" Rutland," p. 11). And so Robert de Vipont had appointed his cousin Robert, son 
of Roger de Gresbroc, to collect and pay in that portion of his Ferm of Tickhill. 
which fell due during his absence. And by the next paragraph we see how Adam 
de Gresbrok or de Tinsley also was in the retinue of his chief lord with the army 
in France. His father Robert, son of Roger, being still alive, Adam had not yet 
succeeded to the family estates, but had left iiis father to act as his agent, to collect 
and pay in what fell due on Tineslaw, held by Adam jure ilxoris, when he was 
paying in his own taxation, accruing on Robert's paternal estates. This is plainly 
shewn by the list given, with the separate ferms mentioned and the sums due on each. 
We have seen, Vol. 111., p. 251, from Carta in Turr. Asservati, fo. 15G'', that the 
custody of the lands and heir of William de London (I.) until he came of age, together 
witli the marriage of Fiorentia, the widow, were granted on 5 August 12u5 to 
Robert de Vipont. Tne process of law will account for a certain lapse of time, 
opening out the estate, application to the King, payment of fines, etc., so it seems 
to me certain that William de London was already dead in 1202, and that the 
usual legal delays account for the three years intervening before the guardianship 
of lands and heirs was settled. This does not much affect us here, and I must 
again take it up when giving the descent of the family of London. Except Tinsley 
every one of these estates were portions of the original 7i knights' fees, in which 
Family 0 had been subinfeuded under the chief lordship of Family B, or else 
estates which Robert son of Roger held as guardian. 

Adam de Roderham, de Gresbrok, or de Tinsley, as he was named at various 
dates — which last he could only have used as a surname after he had acquired the 
half knight's fee and the manor house of Tinsley on his marriage in 1200 with 
Dionysia, the eldest daughter of William and Fiorentia de London, which were 
held of the King by serjeantcy as of the honor of Tickhill— went with his chief 
lord to the wars m France. So it becomes interesting for us to establish when that 
marriage took place. 

In Rot. Oblat. et Fin. (p. 115) for the year 1201, " William de London (1.) 
gave xx^ because he held nothing in capite in co. York, and yet was summoned to 
go across sea." Now this shews us that he had a year or so before that date given 
over to de Gresebrok and de Brett all his holding in Tinsley, co. York, witti his 
two daughters, and establishes fur us that their marriage took place shortly before. 
My view is that this fine of xx^ was imposed for some informality, such as not 
having duly advised the authorities of the transfer of his serjeantcy, and perhaps 
paying some small fine thereon, and thus William de London (I.) was summoned 
to perform feudal service on Yorkshire lands where he held nothing, and the 
Sheriff of that county then summoned Adam de Gresbrok and Hugh de 
Brett ; and the Sheriff of Notts and Derby would then summon de Loudon for 
services due on his holdings in those counties, who proceeded in his retinue to the 
wars in France and died tiiere. 

As already shewn, p. 7, Adam died about tue year 1230, when Robert his 
father, if he still survived, would continue as guardian of the heir and have charge 



of the estates with his own, all of which were to descend to Henry his grandson. 
Records fail me here. I cannot see evidence as to when the grandfather died, 
and am not sure that he survived his son. It was 700 years ago, so he is certainly 
now dead, ;ind father, son, and grandson are so closely tied up together in our 
records to be presently shewn that the exact year is of no moment.

Pedigree of de Londres or London, which shews how the blood of Roger de

William de London (I.), who held half a knight's fee,: 
also lands in serjeantcy in Nettle worth and Wareship 
(Worksop), Notts, and Tinsley, Ebor (Pipe Roll, 1195-6). 
These lands had descended throui^h Beatrice de Maieroles, 
being her portion of the de Busli estates. In 1197 
William de London xii librates terr» in Ebor unde fuit 
disseis. when in Notts Castle cum Comite Johan' (Mag.

Law had been betw. Thomas de London, father of said 
William, and Gilebertum, brother of said Henry, con- 
cerning lands of Catesclive and Haia, and judgment for 
Thomas and W"' after him, until the said Henry disseised 
him when he was in Tickhill Castle, therefore William 
has the King's Writ of Seisin (Abbrev. Placitorum, p. 
24). In 1201 William de London gave xx s. because 
he held nothing in capite in co. York, and yet was 
summoned to go across sea (Rot. Oblat. et Fin., p. 145). 
Therefore he had before that date transferred all Tinsley 
to Adam de Gresbroc and Hugh de Brett. On 5 August 
1205 grant to Robert de Yeteri Ponte of the lands and 
heirs of W™ de London de Tineslowe, until the heir be 
of full age, with marriage of the aforesaid heir, and of 
Florentia, who was the wife of the said William (Rot. 
Cart, in Turri Asserv., i., p. 156^ 7 Joh'is).- So William 
(1.) had gone to the wars in France in 1202 and died 
there, and William de London (II.) was the aforesaid 
heir, and under age.

said mediety is worth .... 

The document has been cut off here and the remainder missing. The date of 
taking the Inquisition has been omitted. If there was another taken in Yorkshire 
I cannot find it. Indeed I have already shewn that Tinsley in that county had 
been given by William's father in frank marriage with Dionysia and Eva the 
elder sisters of this William (II.), also that William de London (I.), the father, 
had declared in 1201 that he then held no estates in Yorkshire (Rot. Oblat. et Fin 
p. 145). '

I have not been able to connect Nicholas Fuller the Biblical critic with this or 
indeed any other branch of the family. (The " Die. Nat. Biog." is wrong in the 
date of his death and the name of his son, which was Nicholas and not Michael.) 
He was Prebendary of Salisbury, Rector of Bishop's Waltham and of Allington, son 
of Robert Fuller by Catherine Cresset ; his wife was Catherine Harwood, and his 
sister wife of Archdeacon Barlow. In his will hft mentions " my brother Barlow, 
Archdeacon of Sarum, and my brother Harwood, Prebendary of 'Winchester ;" his 
son Nicholas and daughter Katheyrine, who married Thomas Bennett in 1672. He 
left his M8S. to Sir Thomas Bodley, and among them are the following : —

In this connection it is curious to note that, in the pediirree herewith, Elizabeth 
fetandish, wife of Nichohis ffuller, by her first husband Edwards of Shropshire had 
a daughter married to a Worwood. These facts tend to shew that the unplaced 
Kev._ i\icholas ffuller was somehow connected with this line. The Christian name

Miscellanea GENEALOGicA et heraldica.

To THE Editor of " Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica." 


In common, no doubt, with many of your readers, I have })erused 
Mr. Grazebrook's contributions to your pages with considerable interest. But in 
the most friendly way I would advise him to call a halt and state briefly what are 
" the Proofs for each generation " on which he relies. 

I have studied his articles most carefully, and am quite unable in many instances 
to discover his line of argument. This state of things occurs so frequently that I 
cannot think that the explanation lies always in my own denseness ; and as it seems 
to me undesirable that a lengthy history professing to prove an important pedigree 
should appear in your valued pages unless it fultils its pretensions, I ask permission 
to state my objections and points of agreement. Few readers will have taken the 
trouble to examine Mr. Grazebrook's arguments so carefully as I, for which reason 
my criticism is all the more necessary, and will yet be regarded by him, I trust, as 
all the more complimentary. 

Your obedient Servant and Subscriber, 

• W. F. Caetee. 

(1) Vol. II., p. 270, 1. 30. We see here that the two sons who had succeeded to the 

old Seigneur de Bus lei, viz., Roger ins cmd Ernaldus, etc. 
As a matter of fact the deed quoted as shewing all this does not shew that 
{a) there was any " old ^5eigneur de Buslei," or that {b) the witness Roger de Buslei 
was son of any seigneur de Buslei, or that (c) " Hernald who owns part of the tithe " 
was any relation to Roger de Buslei the grantor. 

(2) Vol. II., p. 312, 1. 54. To his brother Ernaldus de Busli and the younger 

branch he {Roger de Busli) gave, etc^ 
No proof other than mentioned in (1) — which is no proof — is given to shew 
that Ernald was brother of Roger. Xor can I gather on what evidence Mr. Graze- 
brook relies to prove that Roger " gave." I presume it is Domesday Book, but no 
reference is given. 

(3) Vol. III., p. 22, 1. 37. We have already proved that Rogerius de Buslei, together 

ivith his brother Ernaldus, etc. 
Again I must state as in (2) that no such proof is given. The real proof of the 
brotlierhood of Roger and Ernald is the pedigree given in the 1219 suit brought by 
Robert and Idonea de Vipont and mentioned by Mr. Grazebrook on p. 255 of Vol. III. 
A few lines lower down Mr. Grazebrook argues that Ernulf and Ernald are 
variations of the same name. I do not know why he introduces this point, which 
does not prove anything in his pedigree, and which curiously enough makes it seem 
a little, more possible that Hernald the part tithe-owner was identical with Ernulf 
the provost (priepositus) who appears in the same facsimile, and was therefore 
probably not a seigneurial " de Buslei " at all. 

(4) Vol. III., p. 25, 1. 46. Ernaldus died . . . ., leaving his eldest son William de 

Buslei a married man with young children, and he succeeded to the 
1\ knights' fees in Maltby, Sandby, etc. 
No evidence has so far been given to shew that Ernald left any son William, or 
that any Wihiam succeeded to the 7^ knights' fees. 



- (5) Vol. III., p. 77, 1. 1. WilUam de BiisU I., the elder son of ErnaJdus, succeeded 

his father We see on pp. 21 ayid 24: that at his uncle's death he teas a 

married man tcith young children. 
We do not see any such thing. On p. 21 is the mere statement that " tlie eldest 
son of Ernaldns, William de Buislei, was a comparatively young man," but no proof 
for the statement. On p. 24 a charter of 1121 is quoted shewing that William de 
Buyssy, Jordan de Buyssey, and Roger de Boyssy, three of the witnesses, were sons 
of Hawis, eldest sister of Walter Espec, but there is nothing to shew the Christian 
name of the husband of Hawis, and therefore Mr. Grazebrook's elaborate calcula- 
tion as to the ages of the three witnesses is beside the point. The particulars as to 
Willonghton, given a little further on, certainly shew that a William de Bassa 
{i.e., Busli) had succeeded a Roger de Busli about 1101-9, but nothing as to their 
relationship or William's parentage. 

(6) Yol. III., p. 85, 1. 9. We are told by contemporary charters in 1121 and 1131 

that William de Busli I. married Hatvisia de Espec. 
I have shewn in (5) that the 1121 charter does not shew the Christian name of 
Hawis' husband, and reference to p. 81, 1. 1, will shew that the 1131 charter also 
gives no more information on the point. 

(7) Vol. III.^ pp. 106—113. It is satisfactory to find that the pedigree (p. 112) 

given in this instalment is very clearly proved by the evidences accom- 
panying it, which also are strengthened by further particulars o-iven on 
p. 201. * 

(8) Vol. in., p. 254, J. 18. We see (p. 108) that John de Bnlli had married 

Idonea before 1164-5. 
Turning to p. 108 we see no such thing. We see from the Uot. De Dominabus 
quoted there, 1. 31, and from p. 109, as shewn in the pedigree on p. 112, that John 
de Bulli married his cousin Cecilia. This is no doubt a mere slip of the pen. but 
confuses the narrative which is dealing with another Idonea. 

(9) Vol. III., p. 306, 1. 3. Roger III. had married about 1113 the Icuhj Eiine. 

^ Unless he means us to accept as an authority the 1584-5 Visitation of York- 
shire, when Glover the herald is found " stretching his hand back for 400 years " 
Mr..Grazebrook offers no evidence tor this marriage, or for the existence of Beatrice 
the issue of it, or for the marriage of Beatrice with a certain Archil. He does, 
however, quote an entry on the Pipe Roll of 1130-1, shewing that one Roger de 
Maierolles paid two marcs for the land of Eune de Tinsley with her daugliter.* 
This, however, does not bring in Roger de Busli at all, and makes it necessary for 
Mr. Grazebrook to argue that under feudal arrangements de Busli was deprived of 
the guardianship of his daught;er because she was heiress of her mother. So far as 
record evidence is concerned the Lady Eune drops into the pedigree from the 

(10) Vol. III., p. 308, 1. 3. For " Augustus Vincent " read " Augustine Vincent." 

(11) Vol. III., p. 312, 1. 31. Roger de Busli III. having settled his residence at 

Gresbrolc and so taJcen that name. 
No evidence is given in support of these statements, though Mr. Grazebrook 
suggests that Roger may have been ejected from Tinsley and gone elsewhere. Xor 
has evidence been offered for any of the following statements on the same pao-e 
concerning Roger : — ° 
(a) That he had held Gresbrok " in joint occupancy with his elder 

brother Jordan." 
(J) That he died before 18 December 1156, 
(c) Leaving his eldest son Robert. 

^ We- should surely read-" oumJllii^ 8u^." 



(12) Vol. III., p. 366, 1. 3. The first time where I have found this Robert men-- 

tioned (says Islr. Grazebiook) is in DvgdaJe's " Mormsticon when his 
first-cousin Richard de Busli joundcd Roche Ahhey, to which charter he 
appears as a ivitness nnder the name of Robert de Sccdzebi. 
Except that Sca^rsby or Scowsby (a hamlet of Brods\\orth) "was one of the 
Domesday manors of Rofjer de Busli the first, no shadow of evidence is offered for 
this identification of the two Roberts ! 

(13) Vol. III., p. 3C6, 1. 13. RobcU, son (f Roger {de Busli), had also given Icuids 

toicards that endowment, for by a second charter Richard de Bidli confirms 
the gifts to that Abbey {Roche), Ailricthorpe . . . . et terrain qvam habeni de 
Roberto milite meo de Sccdzebi, and his hiight then foUoivs as a ivitness 
Robertus de Bulli. 

How can Mr. Grazebrook possibly divine that Robert de Bulli the witness is 
identical with Robert the knight mentioned in the deed ? It may be so; it may 
even be capable of proof, but he simply assumes it as in the instance just 
preceding he assumed the identity of Robert de Scalzebi with Robert whom he calls 
" de Gresbrok." 

(14) Yol. III., p. 368, 1. 26. Robert de Busli or de GresbroJc tvho .... left Scauceby 

and took np his residence at Gresbroc and used thai name .... had married 

about 1165 the sister of William Paynell. 
No record evidence whatever is offered for the leaving, or taking up, or for the 
use of name, or for the match with Paynell. Mr. Grazebrook certainly shews the 
presence of a Robert de Bulli or de Bussei in the district, but does not attempt to 
prove him to be connected with Gresbroc. 

(15) Vol. III., p. 370, 1. 9. Should we not for " Brodsworth " read *' Dods- 


These criticisms have now taken Mr. Grazebrook's history down to the end of 
Volume III., where they may conveniently halt. 

The blazons and families of two quarterings required. 

In the last number of "Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica," Fourth Series, 
Vol. IV., pp. 1 and 41, are two achievements : — 

P. 1 (Grazebrook), the third quartering of which reads like: Argent, a chevron 
gules between three ? wolves' heads erased .... {? proper). Mr. Grazebrook in his 
letter only says this quartering has been in the direct male line since 1065, so 
traditiou may enable him to kindly answer the question : Is it the old Welsh coat, 
in which the heads are sable ? I find Papworth says there is in the family a 
quartering of de Hesden ; can it be that ? 

P. 41 (RusHWORTH). As 1 and 4 quarters are Rushworth and 2 Holmes, one 
would think the third was brought in by Holmes. It reads like : Argent, three 
pole-cats or iveasels passant in pah ? proper. In the pedigree I can find nothing 
that might lead to its identification, but curiously enough I find in "Notitia 
Anglicana," vol. ii., p. 32, that the Duchess, wife of Duke Philip Wharton, who 
was a daughter of the Hon. Lieut.-General Holmes, bore Gules, three cloys passant 
in pale argent, but I cannot make out tliat she was an heiress, and so entitled to 
be quartered ; and I can find no confirmation of this coat, whilst the charges being 
blazoned *' dogs " is surely unusual. 





To THE Editor of Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica." 

If he was born at Doveiiby it is very likely that he would be baptized at his 
parish church Bridekirk, near Cockermouth. If so, the entry might include the 
name of his father. The registers might of course give other information about 
the family.

Hie Parish Register. Vol. VII. of tbe Genealogist's Pocket Library." By William Brad- 
brook, M.R.C.8. Walton-on-Thames : Charles A. Bernau. 1910. 

This is another issue of the '-Genealogist's Pocket Library," and the price is 2s. &d. The 
Author devotes a chapter to proper names, and he cites the variations of spelling Shakespeare's 
Dame at Stratford-on-Avon in eight ways and in fifteen ways in Rowington register. 

Pedigrees of tlie Family of Boyle of Limavady and the Family of Ogilby of Ardnargle and 
Pellipar, Bungiven. Compiled by E. M. F. G. Boyle. 

These are two sheet pedigrees, measuring 56 by 18 inches, the former in eight generations, from 
James Boyle in 1660 to Edward Ogilby Boyle in 1902 ; the latter of the Family of Ogilby, from 
1670 in nine generations, to Major George Delamain Crocker, who married Mabel Norah Ogilby 
in 1906. Both Pedigrees are authenticated by dates, parentage, etc., and shew skill in drawing 
out, and we have to congratulate each family in having such a genealogical historian as our 
Author. The arms and crest are given with each family. 

English Church Brasses, from 1300 to 1700. By Ernest B. Suffling, Author of " Epitaphise," 
etc. With 237 Illustrations. London : L. Upcott Gill. Bazaar Buildings, Drury Lane. 

This is a volume of 468 pp., and the brass to Bishop Ysowilpe, 1231, in St. Andrew's Church, 
Verden, Hanover, is a good example. The Author gives a good account of the demolition of 
brasses which began in the reign of Henry VIII. ; the suppression of monasteries and convents, 
turning out nearly 150,000 monks, priests, and nuns, and the sacking of the religious houses, 
involved the ruthless destruction of ail the brasses extant, which were torn from their slabs 
and thousands melted down and sold for cash. Great Yarmouth utilized the opportunity by 
ordering the brasses to be recast for all measures, weights, and scales to be used for the town. 

The rubbings of mail armour given are very interesting, beginning as early as 1277, and 
samples of ladies' head-dresses of 1325 and the skirts worn in 1535 are worth notice. Figure 
94 is of Aphra Hawkins 1605, where she is dressed in the height of fashion, as the Author says. 

Among the 237 examples of rubbings given, each is interesting for shewing the different 
styles adopted between 1277 and 1500, and in all the counties the localities are given. The 
Work in every way is worth the student's study, and the price of 10#. Qd. will enable many 
readers to secure copies. It is furnished with a good index, and bound in cloth. 



The Visitation of England and Wales. Vol. XVL By Frederick Arthur Crisp, F.S.A. 

Privately printed, 1909. 

This volume, just issued, is edited with the same care as its predecessors, and contains forty 
pedigrees, including Baron Walsingham of 1788, who was educated at Eton and Cambridge in 
1799, dying in 1839; Lord Rosebery, born in 1847, and was Prime Minister in 1894 ; and Duke 
of Devonshire, born in 1868, and now Mayor of Eastbourne : all three noblemen have a full-page 
Plate of their Arms. There are eight Plates in all, including portraits of Admiral John Bazely^ 
who died in 1809, and Rear-Admiral Bazoly, who died in 1828. ■ ' 

The Work besides is illustrated by about 130 autographs, and the whole book is printed 
on fine paper, making a volume of 256 pages, with full Index, etc., and is half -bound in white 

The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record. Vol. XLL, No. 2, for April, 1910. 
New York : 226 West oSth Street. 

This Part has a portrait of Pvobert Hoe, the celebrated engineer, to whom, from llie Times 
downwards to all the smaller newspapers, all are indebted for the finest examples of printing 
presses working. Mr. Walter of The Times was the first to patronize him in England, we 
believe, and Mr. Hoe died in London in September 1909. leaving a large family. He was the 
possessor of a great library, and fine bindings were also his charm, he having a great collection 
of silver Elizabethan bindings, as well as miniatures. The present Part is enriched with an 
illuminated copy of the Arms of Thacher family, with two Plates of the Thacher Pitcher and 
Arms ; they were originally of Salisbury, England, and their soi\ Antony went to America in 1635, 
and settled in Yarmouth, Massachusetts. The Visitation of Sussex in 1530," published by the 
Harleian Society of England in 1905, has the original pedigree of the family. 

The Part has also the genealogy of the Dutcher family of 1701, and the Cromwell and Lewis 
families of the Mohawk Valley, and a Digest of Essex Wills, with particular reference to names 
in the American Colonies, besides a paper on the Science of Genealogy as a growing study in 
the United States. Altogether this is an excellent Part, and very interesting is its contents. 

The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography. Vol. XVIII., No. 2, April 1910. 
Virginia Historical Society, Richmond, U.S.A. 

This Part keeps up the Records of the Randolph Manuscript and the Virginia Legislative Papers 
from 1776. Virginia in 1656 to 1658 had its usual petitions and orders issued by the Council, 
besides naming persons who had been kidnapped as soon as they arrived. The Virginia Glean- 
ings in England give the wills of Englisjhmen bound to Virjjinia from 1670 to 1710, and the 
genealogy continued comprises the families of Brent, Brooke, Pleasants, and Robinson, all 
interesting to many of the same names in England. The Proceedings of the Virginia Historical 
Society are likewise given, concluding the Part, which is interesting throughout.

We have already seen by Pipe Roll 7 Ric. I. (1195-6) that William de LondoD, 
the father, then paid x marks for half a knight's fee and for certain lands of the 
serjeantcy in Nettleworth and Worksop (Notts) and Tineslaw (Ebor). Therefore 
these two marriages had taken place between 1195 and 1201. 

1249. Curia Regis Roil 135, rot. 27, Mich. 33 Henry III. (September- 
October 1249). Wylt. Assize if Johes Sweting, father of Dyonisia, wife of Walter 
Sweting, was seised of two parts of a Yirgate and 5 acres of land with ptin 
extraneis 2 acres in Sutton die quo obiit, which land Adam Durant holds, who 
called to warranty Roger de Cruhal, who called to warranty AVilliam de London. 
And now the said Adam Durant came and said that the aforesaid William died 
after he called him to warrant him, and further said that one Eva, sister of William, 
and one Henry, the son of Dyonisia, another sister of William, are heirs of the 
aforesaid William, and he calls them to warranty. But he says that the aforesaid 
Henry, the son of Dyonisia, is under age and in custodia D'ne Regine. And said 
that all the land of the aforesaid William is in the same manner in manu ipius 
Dne Regine, and that Walter Sweting and Dyonisia his wife are aware of this. 
And a day is given in Easter Term, and in the interim the Queen's wishes to be 

This shews that Adam and Dyonisia were both dead, and that Henry, who was 
the son of Dyonisia, and Eva, the sister of William de London (IL), were heirs of 
the said William, and that Henry (de Tinsley), son of Dyonisia, was still under 
age and in the hands of the Queen. 

Pat. Roll 1225, m. 5 dorso. Ass. morfc. antecessoris at Wilton inter William 
de London pet. versus Johannem de Baalun ten., 1 Caruc of Land in Magna Sutton, 
addressed to the Yicecom. Wiltescire. There are three vills called " Sutton " in co. 
Wilts. This shews us which was held by our AVilliam. 

De Banco Roll 12 Edw. I., rot. 31 dorso, co. Nottingham, Trin. Term (May 
and June 1284), Walter Bret petit versus Henr. de Tyneslowe : One messuage 
and two bovates of land cum pertin^ in Netleworth as his right and inheritance, 
who says that one William his ancestor was seised of the aforesaid tenement, " ut 
de feodo et jure tempore pacis," in the time of the Lord King Henry, father of the 
now King, holding therein " expletia ad valentia," etc. And from the said Wil- 
liam, who died s.p.m., the right descended to Eva, Alienore, Isabel, and Deonisia, 
as his sisters and heirs. And from this Deonisia, who died without heir, the 
"Jus" descended to the aforesaid Eve, Alienore, and Isabel as sisters and heirs. 
And from the aforesaid Isabel, who entered into religion apud Ambresbur and was 
there professed, descended the " Jus " to the aforesaid Eve and Alienore as sisters 
and heirs. And from the said Alienora, who died without heir, descended to the 
said Eva as sister and heir. And from the said Eva to one Richard as her son and 
heir. And from that Richard to Walter, who now claims as his son and heir, 
etc., etc. 

And Henry came and defended his right, etc., and said that whereas the said 
Walter in his narrative said of the aforesaid Deonisthat she died without heir from 
her descended, and so the " Jus " came to her sisters and heirs. The same Deonis 
had him the said Henry as her son and heir, and the heir seised proportionately of 
the aforesaid tenements and asked for judgment. And Walter said that the afore- 
said Henry could not be the heir of the said Deonis because he was a Bastard, 

♦ Communicated by Geo. Grazebrook. Esq., F.S.A. — continued from p. 59, 


and this he was prepared to prove. And in order to verify this the Court had to 
consider by what course the truth might be fully known through the Ecclesiastical 
Courts, and the Archbisliop of York is asked that " coiiotatis coram eo constaudis " 
he enquire diligently as to the truth of the matter, and that the Justices send to 
him their letters Patent, etc., to that eftect, and it was adjourned sine die. 

I have been unable to find any verdict in the Records at York, but ^Fr. Hunter 
("South Yorkshire," vol. ii., p. 31) remarks : " It is manifest the Archbishop's 
return was favourable as Henry and his posterity enjoyed their share of the lands," 
and we now see the proofs that Henry and his descendants long continued to hold 
and hand them down. 

The heraldry for the above London Pedigree as drawn up by Richard Gascoigne 
for Thomas, 1st Earl of Strafford, in 1661 :— 
Busli. — Arg., 3 bars Sable (should be 2). 
Tynneslowe. — Arg., a chev. betw. 3 wolves heads erased Gules. 
Maieroles. — Gu., 10 cross-croslets 4, 3, 2, 1 or. 
London. — Az., a Hon ramp. Or and bordure erm. 
Hooton of Hooton Roberts. — Arg., a cross pattee Sa. 
Skelton. — Az., a fess betw. 3 fleur de lys or. 

These are also given in " Glover's Visitation, 1584," and allowed by the Heralds 
temp. Q. Elizabeth, and are in AYentworth Chapel on the tomb of Thomas Went- 
worth and Margaret Gascoigne his wife, dated 1587 ; Harl. MSS. 1047, 1394 ; 
Hunter's " South Yorkshire," ii., p. 98 ; "Yorkshire Archa?olog. Journal," vi,, pp. 
344, 371 ; Foster's " Yorkshire Pedigrees," in Watson-Wentworth achievement. 
The Heralds' College also made up a similar list of quarterings for the 2nd Marquis 
of Rockingham, who succeeded to the title in 1750. I have not got Edmondson's 
" Baronagium," but should expect to find them there. 

In addition to the variations in spelling which we find in all early oft-repeated 
names, this family of London appears frequently, during the first half of the 
thirteenth century, written " de Londoniis," Londonensis," " Londoniensis." 
This has been a great puzzle to all of us ! Mr. Joseph Hunter mentions it (vol. i., 
p. 399), and Mr. Holmes can make nothing of it in his " Pontefract Chartulary "! 
I put forward as a possible solution that some school of scribes considered that 
since charters were in Latin the surnames also should be Latinized throughout. 
Christian names were so treated in very early times, and appear with genitives, 
datives, and accusatives, but the surnames had no cases ! Some surnames did not 
lend themselves to such treatment, and continue undiluted. This a mere suggestion 
of mine, and requires careful examination, but on hastily looking through a quantity 
of charters it seems probable that it was a fashion taken up by some eccentric 
transcribers, about the above date, in certain districts only and especially among 
the Charters of Pontefract. 

[C. Gen. 6.] Henricus de Tynneslow, declared to be the son of Adam de 
Gresbroke and Dionysia his wife, and under age in Curia Regis Roll, Wilts, 
Sep.— Oct. 1249, that is he must have been born after 1228, and his father and 
mother were both dead in 1249. As my interest in this portion of the Pedigree is 
greatly lessened I shall only extend it down to the two granddaughters of Henry 
when his male line became extinct, and the large estates were divided between these 
two coheiresses. I therefore propose to cease details which may almost be termed 
biographical, and give to each generation only a few contemporaneous evidences, 
but quite sufficient for proof. 

Henry married Lucia, da. and coheir of Robert de Hoton Robert by his wife Lucia, 
da. and coheir of Sir Richard Skelton (refer to pedigree of London, Vol. IV., p. 58), 
and had with her half a knight's fee in Hoton Robert. 

Vincent, vol. iii., p. 78, and Gascoigne, Harl. MS. 1047, both say that Henry 
de Tinneslawe occurs as a knight in 1272 (1 Edw. f.), but I do not know their 
reference. X feel certain that he would have become a knight immediately on sue- 




ceeding to TiDsley held by Serjeantcy, on his father's death, which occurred after 
1228 and about the year 1230 (Vol. IV., p. 7). Therefore he nmst have been a 
knight long before ! 

The Statute of 1 Edw. II., cap. i. (1307-8), enacts that every gentleman hold- 
ing a full knight's fee by knight's service mif/ht be compelled to take out his knight- 
hood. This shews me that some laxity had prevailed prior to that date, which was 
thus corrected ; and I have often found instances where it was sought to evade 
the burthens attached to that honour. [Refer to " Genealogist," vol. xxi. (for 
1904-5), p. 143.] This law continued uncancelled until 17 Charles I., cap. 20 

1249, Sep. Curie Regis, Wilts, Adam and Dyonisia both dead, Henry their son 
under age, therefore horn after 1228. Refer to documents attached to Lon- 
don pedigree. 

1271. Abbrev. Placitorum, p. 183, Rot. 21, dorso, Ebor, 56 Henry III. Henry 
de Tineslawe versus Richard fil. Roger de Stokewell and others, breaking 
into his house at " Sande de malo passu," and theft. Coram Rege Roll, Hil. 
56 Henry III., m. 25 dorso. There is a place called Sande within the villa 
of Doncaster and Wappk. of Strafford Hundred Rolls, p. 110. (Wain- 
right's " Strafford and Tickbill," p. 9.) 

1277 Henry de Tynslawe and \Y alter le Brett held conjointly 1 knight's fee in 
Tinsley of the Honor of Tickbill. (Kirkby's Inquest ; 1277 is the proper 
date, and that is a most confused document.) 

1277. Henry de Tynneslawe holds J knight's fee in Hooton Robert of the King 
in capife. 

1277. Robert fil. Willemi de Hoton holds I a knight's fee in Hoton Robert of 
the King in capite, and each of them paid 5^ Wardfee, 10^ Wapentake Fee, 
6^ Sheriffs Aid, and 4<i Waitmeat. (Hunters " S. Yorkshire," vol. i., p. 399.) 
1282, 28 Dec. At the Inq. post mortem of Roger de Clifford, junior, taken at 
Malteby, the leading Juror was Sir Henry de Tynislowe. Refer to Vol. III., 
p. 259. (Yorkshire Archaeological Soc. "Records," xii., p. 257.) 
1284. Walter Brett, son of Richard, son of Eva the sister and coheir of William 
de London, claimed against Henry de Tyne^lawe, who was son of Dyonisia 
the eldest sister (Plac. de Banco, Trin. 12 Edw. I., rot. 31) June 1284. 
Refer to London Pedigree documents, Yol. lY., p. 126. 
1292, Easter Monday, 7 April. Idonea de Leybourne grants privileges to Bawtre, 
mentioned Yol. III., p. 259, is witnessed by Sir Henry de Tinslow, Knt. 
(Hunter's " S. Yorkshire," i., p. 70.) He seems to have witnessed nearly 
every charter in his neighbourhood about this time. 
" In 1292-3 the Jurors of Wap. of Strafford found that Henry de Tineslawe 
and Walter le Bret held the Yill of Tineslawe of the heir of William de Londre, 
Uncle of the said Henry, of the Honour of Tykeshill as partners in an inheritance 
by the serjeanty of keeping a hawk [osterium] from Michaelmas to Easter in each 
year. They received each day while on guard 7^*^. There were no arrears, but 
Walter Bret had alienated out of his share to Master John Letard 20 acres of 
wood 3 years before ; to Henry Letard, John's father, 2 bovates of land 20 years 
before ; to Roger Hering of Tyneslawe 40 acres of brushwood [brussati] 2 years 
before ; to William Jordan of Tykhill 30 acres of wood and a moiety of the advow- 
son of the free chapel of Tynslawe 3 years before ; to Idonea de Leyborne, the 
Lady of Kimberworth, 4^ of rent and 2 acres of meadow 2 years before ; without 
the Royal licence." (Yorkshire Archa3ological Society Records," vol. xvi., p. 79, 
under "Lay Subsidy Roll of 1297 "; also Yorkshire Assize Rolls, N. 1, 14-1, 
£b. 28.) 

So we see that the unthrifty le Bretts had started, at least as early as 1272, 
selling off piecemeal what they held in Tinsley as one half of a knight's fee, and 
without the necessary licence from the King ! This opens one's eyes to the des- 
peration which drove Walter Bret to his proceedings at law, 1281 and 1284, as 
detailed in the documents given in our pedigree of de I<ondon, 



1297. Inquisition of Tenants of Blythe Priory, pnrish of Darfield : " Et dns 
Henricus de Tyneslawe tenet 4 bov' t*^re per servicium xl. denarii per 
annum. (Harl. MS. S759, Blythe Chartnlary, fo. 140.) 

1300. Military Summonses. Henry de Tinsley (Henricus de Tyneslouwe Tyn- 
neslo-^-e) returned from the Wapentake between Ouse and Derweut in co. 
York as holding lands or rents, either in capite or otherwise, to the amount 
of £40 yearly value and upwards, and as such summoned under the general 
Writ to perform military service against the Scots. Muster at Carlisle on 
the Xativity of St. John Baptist, 24 June 28 Edw. L, 1300. (Parliamen- 
tary Writs, vol. i., p. 332, No. 17 ; Harl MS. 1192, No. 53, fo. P.) 

1301. Henricus de Tynneslowe sum^^ from co. York to perform military service in 
person against the Scots. Muster at Berwick-on-Tweed on the nativity of 
St. John Baptist, 24 June 29 Edw. I. {Idem, vol. i., p. 256, No. 6.) 

As we have seen the de Brets selling off their share of Tinsley, co. York, from 
the year 1272, I think it will be interesting to give the following : — 

" 1297. Rogerus le Bret returned from Co. of Notts and Derby as holding lands 
and rents to the amount of £20 yearly value and upwards, either in capite 
or otherwise, and as such summoned under the general writ to perform 
military service in person with horses, arms, etc., in Scotland. Muster at 
Nottingham on Sunday next after the Octaves of St. John Baptist, 7 July 
25 Edw. I." {Idem, p. 287, No. 16.) 

1301, dated on the day of Pentecost, 23 April, at Tynneslaw, William, son of 
Roger Heryng, gives to Richard Peryn of Tynneslawe a parcel of woods in 
the Park of Tyneslawe. Testibus No. 1, Henricus de Tyneslawe milite, 
and No. 3, Willelmo fii D'ni Henrici de Tyneslawe militis. Here we see the 
son Peryn selling again the woods bought by his father in 1290. (Add. 
MS. 24,467, Deed 11, fo. 701. The name and position of the lands are 
fully given.) 

1301. Annora, sometyme wife of Henry de Perpont, grants all her lands in the 
town of North Auston. Testibus Henry de Tinneslow, Robert de Waddis- 
ley, knights, etc. (Harl. :\IS. 801, fo. 8*^ ; Hunter's " S. Yorkshire," vol. i., 
p. 305); but it w^ould be endless and useless quoting any further instances 
of Sir Henry's occurring as a witness ! 

1316. Henry de Tinsley is certified pursuant to the writ tested at Clipston 
5 March 1316, as Lord of the Township of Tinsley, co. York. (Palgrave's 
" Parliamentary Writs," iv., part 2, No. 32, p. 416.) 

1318-20. Mr. Jos. Hunter says Sir Henry died 12 or 13 Edw. XL, that is between 
8 July 1318 and 7 July 1320, which agrees with my evidences. (" South 
Yorks.," ii., p. 32.) 

He left several sons surviving, of whom we need only mention two, who in turn 
succeeded to these estates. 

[C. Gen. 7.] William de Tynneslowe, who was mentioned as his son, on the 
day of Pentecost, 23 April 1301, also in the suits concerning the de London 
inheritance (Vol. IV., p. 126). He married the da. of Sir William Waddesley, Knt. 
("Visit." 1563-4 ; MS. D. 2 in Con. of Arms ; Harl. Soc, xvi., p. 325.) 

I don't know what became of him ; perhaps he went on foreign service. These 
were very disturbed times, frequent wars in Scotland and Wales, and it seems pro- 
bable that William de Tinnesiowe was constantly drawn away by his feudal 
services. And as explained, I have always found the military Records so very un- 
satisfactory, as not giving sufficient proofs for identity, that these have not been 
searched ! However, the very full and exact particulars given in the Inquisitio 
post mortem supply all we want iu finishing off his career. He died at the end of 
the year 1321, s.p.m.

Nott'mgham.—Xt Warshop in bo. Notts on Wednesday after the feast of Epi- 
phany (6 January 1322) in the fifteenth year of King Edward, son of King Edward 
Say, under their Oath, that William de Tinneslawe held on the day on '"which he 
died, in Nettelworth, one site of a manor and 30 acres of land in demesne of the 
lordship of the King in soccageof the ancient demesnes of Maunsfield by the service 
of 5^ yearly and per secta curia (^f Maunsfield from three weeks in three weeks, 
which are worth per annum W if they were let on lease, but now they lie waste! 
And that the same William held on the day he died, in Nettleworth and Warshop,'

W^e see that on 2 February 1322 Walter de Tynneslowe his brother is declared 
to be 40 years of age and more I while on 6 January 1322 his age is set down at 
50 years and more ! But we can never guess anything from such ages, they merely 
meant that he was a man of full age ; perhaps also, what was interesting in taxation, 
not yet 60 years, and so still liable to feudal services in person. 

rC Gen 71 Walter de Tynneslowe, younger son of Henry de Tynneslow, 
Gen 6 and heir at the death of his brother William de Tynneslowe, s p.m. at 
the end of the year 1321, had married Agnes, da. and coheir of Hugonis de Moles. 
(Gascoigne; Vincent; Harleiau MS. 1047 ; Hunter's " South Yorkshire, vol. i., 

^' ^In 1277 we find Walter de Tynneslawe and Johes de Shelton holding half a 
knight's fee in Shelton de honore de Tikhill (both m Kirkby's Inquest), and again 
in 1301 in the Aid sjranted to Edw. I. ^, , , ^ ^ ^ • -u.* 

Affaiu in 1-^95 Walter de Tynneslev and John de Schelton hold half a knight s 
fee in Tinsley (Harl. MS. 801, ref. K.'95-). I think both of these must have been 
an allowance out of his mother's lands to him as the 2nd son. His mother was 
Lucia, coheiress of Robert de Hoton by Lucia, coheiress of Skelton. 

In 1322 Walter is declared heir to his brother William de Tynneslowe (Inq. 
post mortem, Vol. IV., pp. 129-131); and in 1323 Walter de Tynneslawe, brother 
and heire of William Tynneslawe, gives 5 Marks for his relevium for his irianor of 
Tynneslawe, 17 Edw; II. (Harl. MS. 801, ref. LL. 114«.) That would be the 
payment for 1 knight's fee in capite, but I know not whether for co. York only. 

Walter enjoyed the estates for a very short time and died in 1326, leaving only 
two daughters who survived him, viz. ; —

^ Thomas Thoresby was an executor of the will, dated 24 January, proved 
(P.C.C., 1, Wattys) 13 February 1470-1, of William Pylton of Lynn, who directs 
that his lands in Pylton, etc'^Northants, and in South Lynn shall be sold to him 
at a less price than to any other. 

The testament of Thomas Thoresby leaves to " my special good lord of Oxen- 
ford" a tabernacle of our Lady of gold, worth 100s., and mentions, besides nearer 
relatives, "Alice Flete, wife to my cousin Flete." . His will, appended to his testa- 
ment^ devises lands for celebrations for the souls of himself, his wives and children, 
his father and mother, and William Pylton and Christian his wife, Gregory Guybon 
and Alice his wife, and John Fincham and Beatrice his wife. His feoffees were 
Thomas Thoresby, William Trewe, Richard Aylmere, Thomas Guybon, Francis 
Moundeford, John Fincham of Outwell, Peter Drayton, clerk, and Simon Fincham,' 

^ Thomas Thoresby was married more than once, and it is not clear that Elizabeth 
. . . ., his wife at the date of his testament, was the mother of any of his children. ■ 
In the Burgoyne pedigree in the "Visitations of Cambridgeshire" (Flarl. Soc, 




vol.xli., pp. 24-25), , da. of John Burgojne, is said to have married Thomas 

Thorseby of Norfolk"; there is nothing to shew whether Thomas Thoresby of 
Lynn in meant.

Henry, Nicholas, Simeon, John the elder, and John the younger (of Out well), and 
his daughters Elizabeth, wife of Humphrey Carirle, Margaret, Alice, and Maro-erie 
(a nun). ° 

G. B. 



Dear Sir, 

I send answers as concise as I can to all Mr. Garter's strictures, 
but feel it is a sad waste of time and of your space ! I follow his enumeration and 

An Incompetent Critic. Fourth Series, Vol. IV., p. 92. 
No. 1, Vol. II., p. 270. No. 2, Vol. II., p. 312. No. 3, Vol. III., p. 22. 

If this gentleman knows Latin he must have seen in the facsimile charter that 
Roger de Buslei and Ernaldus held their estates jointly by hereditary tenure, and' 
were therefore legally competent to create tithes and sell them ; and so they ynust 
have had a father, the old Seigneur," whose Christian name I do not know ! 
apd as Hernaldus held iiis younger brocner's portion which was included in the 
tithes he had to witness their sale among all these grandees. It is quite impossible 
to imagine that any but a younger brother could hold such a position in hereditary 
estates, " cujus erat pars decime." There was some interval between the two sales, 
although they each happen to follow in the Rouen Chartulary. Quidam Vir's sale 
was a civic affair before Ernulfus as the Prince's representative (prepositus) of the 
town, and Godardus had followed the high example set by the lord of Buslei, some 
three miles from Drincourt. 

I cannot understand why Mr. Carter did not erase altogether strictures 1 and 2 
when he had discovered in No. 3 proofs sufficient to satisfy all the questionings he 
had contrived, and which were already perfectly futile. An intelligent reading of the 
charters made such criticism quite impossible. W'hen can Mr. Carter suppose that 
these two men became brothers ? I can tell him. On the day when Ernaldus was 
born, estimated to have been about 1035 (Vol. III., p. 24). Mr. Carter has eaten 
his own words of stricture No. 1 and allows in No. 3 that they were groundless, 
and the facsimile after all was quite correct ! Why, then, did he trouble us with 
Nos. 1 and 2 when the trial in 1219 (No. 3) had settled both ? It looks as if 
Mr. Carler desires to find faults, and not, what we all wish, establish the exact 

No. 3 again. 

To make it quite clear that Hernaldus and Ernulphns is the same name I con- 
sidered it desirable to prove it, and promised (Vol. II., p. 270) to do so at the proper 
time, which did not come until Vol. III., p. 22, when that is clearly and unanswer- . 
ably shewn. I gave the reference page 270, so Mr. Carter ought to have known 



the reason and the necessity of shelving this, and should not have troubled us with 
No. 3, and draw ignorantly a deduction tliat will not hold water. All students 
understand that evidences n.ust constantly be postponed till some later stage when 
the individual name comes in for a full description. Any other couise would lead 
to inextricable confusion ; and knowing this, they prudently wait till they learn all, 
instead of jumping to conclusions in the dark. 

No. 14. 

This also applies to stricture No. 14, which will not be worth answering when 
the whole is printed. 

No. 4, Vol. III., p. 25. No. 5, Yol. III., p. 77. No. 6, Vol. III., p. 85. 

The trial 1219 declares and establishes all about the 7^ knights, and con- 
stantly throughout the whole history I have given repeated records of them and 
their peculiar tenure, paying no servitium, etc. ; and such exact details extend 
until their final dispersal among the heiresses. I think, perhaps, a fresh one here 
will be interesting: "Testa de Nevill," fo. 23'S Notts and Derby. "Countess 
Augi holds as chief lord a long list, 39 feoda held of the Castle of Tykehull," et 
alia qidnque feoda et \ et \ nullum f admit serviihnn propter scuiagium et relevhim 
cum coiitigerit. As a rule I ignoi-e the " Testa de Nevill " because I cannot fix 
exact dates to my satisfaction. This was after 1222. 

And now, No. 6 again, we shall see a little of Mr. Carter's methods and prin- 
ciples, which, to say the least of it, are astonishing ! At Vol. III., p. 77, I write 
that William de Busli I. " had married Hawisia the eldest sister and by the same 
father and mother of Walter Espec," and gave this reference : Dugdale's "Monast.," 
ed. 1655, fo. 728, 1. 36\ This simple statement Mr. Carter meets with a brusque 
negative ! I grant that mine is a direct statement, and must be directly answered 
— he denies it altogether ! 

Now can it be believed that he means to say it was not so without ever having 
looked up the reference given ? Had he done so he would have found the exact 
wording of the Kievaulx Chartulary thus, after naming the three sisters of Walter 
Espec, viz., Hawisia, Albreda, and Adelina, " Prijjam duxit in uxorem Wil- 
LiELMUS BvscYE." Now I consider this is an unpardonable oflence. A critic may 
not flaunt false oi- haphazard statements because he is too lazy to ascertain the 
truth. Also I feel strongly that such behaviour shews a great want of respect to the 
readers of " Miscellanea." We all feel that a '* critic," whether he be self-elected 
or not, must exei'cise proper precautions and ascertain that his premises are correct 
before he ventures to arraign himself as a judge and deny any other man's state- 
ments! and we shall presently see by the introductory letter that this gentleman has 
arrogated to himself a ludicrous position of dignity. "Ex uno disce omnes." We 
now see what is the value of Mr. Carter's most careful studies. 

No. 8. 

I have now the more pleasant task of thanking Mr. Carter for the three follow- 
ing corrections, which he has kindly pointed out. Writing Idonea instead of 
Cecilia at Vol. IIL, p. 254, is one of those mysterious slips which will sometimes 
happen. It is correctly put Vol. III., p. 108, also in the skeleton pedigrees, Vol. III., 
pp. 112, 261. 

No. 10, Vol. III., p. 308. 

I am acquainted with three Vincents who were genealogical experts, two of 
them eminently so. I remember clearly now, I had fast hold of a fact, when one 
of those airy fancies that do sometimes obtrude themselves flitted across the mental 
horizon like a comet, and suggested that I ought to have distinguished by name 
which Vincent I meant. I turned to the " Book of Dignities," and found " Aug." 
in the index, In tlie List of Heralds, p. 331, it is correctly given Augustine, 





No. 15, Vol. III., p. 370. 

Dodsworth should have been written. I hope my readers will kindly alter in 
ink these three corrections. I need not say how much I regret them. 

No. 9, Vol. III., p. 306. 

So far as I can satisfy myself that Glorer and Flower are correct, I gladly 
accept their evidence, and (excepting tlie name of John as brother of Jordanus, 
instead of Eoger de Busli) it is established by my researches. Mr. Carter does not 
.seem to understand in the leasL the processes of ancient law, although clearly 
stated, Vol. III., pp. 309, 310. I decline to go over again what only wants an 
intelligent reading. 

No. 11, Vol. III., p. 312. ■ 

Stricture (a) is answered. Vol. III., pp. 155, 156. Jordan (Family B) and 
Roger III. (Family C) jointly paid relevium and held jointly in Pipe Roll 1155-6. 

(b) Vol. III., p. 156. Roger was dead before 18 December 1156, and Jordan 
alone in possession. 

(c) Skeleton pedigrees, Family B, Vol. III., p. 260 ; Family C not yet printed. 
Nos. 12, 13, 14 

Need only be treated in the same way — read intelligently. I cannot be expected 
to go over and over again everything that Mr. Carter cannot understand ; that 
would take a very long time, and he does not seem able to grasp the necessity of 
correct dates. 

And now for the introductory letter. The smug complacence with which he arro- 
gates to himself the whole duties of judge, advocates, and jury is really very funny. 
I have most carefully^ etc. (see No. 6 for an instance), and will save readei's of the 
"Miscellanea" all the trouble of hearing evidence, examining proofs, etc., and will 
dictate the verdict for them. 

I hope your Subscribers will honour me by reading for themselves and coming 
to their own conclusions. I know my history is very long, but I had to prove every 
statement to the perfect satisfaction of any qualified genealogist ; and I do not 
think after my expose that we shall hear much more of Mr. Carter. 

At first I did not intend to take any notice whatever of such trash, but 
genealogical friends urge that it will be movQ jjolite to refute his strictures and in 
the same volume in which currency was given to them. I hope, therefore, he will 
consider this very long communication as complimentary. 

I am, Dear Sir, yours faithfully, 

Geo. Grazebrook.

A History of tlie Woodgates of Stonewall Park and of Summ^rhill in Kent, and their Connec- 
tions. By the Rev. Gordon Woodgate, M.A., and Giles ^Iusgrave Goroon WoOD- 
GATE. Printed for Private Circulation by Balding and Mansell, Wisbech. 1910. 

This is a portly volume of upwards of 500 pp., well illustrated by portraits of the Woodgate 
family, beginning with th?tt of William Woodgate of Summerhill of 17»J5, a plate of which forms 
the frontispiece of the history. A portrait of Mrs. William Woodgate of Swaylands, by Sir 
Thomas Lawrence, P.R.A., and also that of her husband and a plate of the house, add to the 
picturesqueness of the volume, as well as other portraits and views of the various mansions, 




including Pembury Hall, with its drawing room and old oak staircase, and Spring Grove at Pem- 
bury, the seat of Henry Woodgate, Esq., "and views of the old moated mansion of Hawkwell 
Place (now long since demolisV ed), Tonbridge Castle, and Riverhill. The seven pedigrees 
folded in at various parts, are well executed, and Chapter I., giving the early ancestors of the 
family in 1281 up to 1617, some of whom served under Jack Cade in 1450, has some good 
information respecting the leading members. Hasted giving information of the several Wood- 
gates of Sheldwich and Throwley, and they were succeeded two hundred years later by the 
Wolgates of the same places. Chapter II, enumerates the family from 1590 to 1718, to William 
of Sronewall. High Sheriff of Kent in 1G09, whose son John married the '-fair Rose of Kent," 
the beautiful heiress of a neighbouring squire, in 1G93 ; and in Chapter IV, is narrated how 
Francis, the fifth son of John Woodgate^, began his acaden)ic career at Tonbridge School in 1727, 
gaining the Smythe Exhibition, proceeding afterwards to Trinity College. Oxford, where he 
matriculated in 172<;. graduated I),A. 1729, and in 1734 became M.A. and Vicar of Mountfield 
and Rector of Whatlington in Sussex. Chapters VI. tc XIX. are mostly concerned with family 
letters and wills. Some of the branches married with the Kentish families of the Streatfeilds, 
bringing a long worthy line of Kentish gentlemen into another good family. There were no 
fewe°' than ten intermarriages between Woodgates and Streatfeilds. The Rev. Thomas Streat- 
ieild of Charts Edge, Westerham, who was descended from the Streatfeilds of Cbiddingstone, 
and who married the heiress of Alexander Champion in 1800, had a family by her of eight 
children ; he married secondly the relict of Henry Woodgate of Spring Grove, by whom he had 
five children. He was Chapla'in to the Duke of Kent, and laboured most assiduously in bringing 
out a revised history of Kent, only one Part being published under the editorship of Dr. Henry 
Holman Drake, with the title of Th(^- Ili.^tory of the Hundred of Blachlicath* 

The Work is chiefly remarkable for the long and unbroken series of family letters, ranging 
frorn 1730 — 1850, which shed a flood of light ou^the social and domestic life of the period, and 
are full of contemporary gossip relating to the different families and persons then in West Kent 
and the Hastings neighbourhood. Tliere are full chapters on the Actons, the Ashburnhams of 
Broomham, Sussex (Baronets), the Humphrys of Seal, the Rideouts of Westmeston, the Allnutts 
of South Park, Penshurst, the Nouailles of Greatness, Sevenoaks (an old refugee family, with 
much interesting information about their adventures and escape from France), the Wests of 
Postern Park, Tonbridge, and the Briscos of Coghurst, Sussex, until recently represented by the 
late Sir Musgrave Brisco, Bart. These chapters may all be regarded as family histories in brief, 
the Woodgate connection linking up the whole. 

The entire Work is most painstaking in its details, and the joint Editors deserve the gratitude 
of the whole family for bringing their history down almost to modern days. An Index is 
supplied giving all the names of persons mentioned, which will be found very useful. There are 
pedigrees of the following families : Streatfeild, Ccmbridge, Birsty, Durrant of Framfield, Sey- 
liard, Crompe, Children, Thompson of Seal. Nicoll of Mountfield, Ashburnham, Humphry, 
Hooker of Tonbridge Castle. Allnutt, Nouaille, Delamare, Harvey of Cowden, and Hardinge 
(the Rev. Stephen Woodgate having married in 1809 the first Lord Hardiuge's sister). 

The Utah Genealogical and Ilistoncal Magazine, Vol. I., No. 3, July 1910. Published by the 
Genealogical Society of Utah, 60 East South Temple Street, Salt Lake River, Utah, U.S.A. 

This Part has for frontispiece a Portrait of John Jaques, first librarian of the Utah Genea- 
logical Society, and Mr. J. H. Evans gives a short account of his life. He states that young 
Jaques was born, in Market Bosworth, England, 7 January 1827, and won a reputation for 
diligence, and at 18 joined the Latter- Day Saints, leaving Stratford-on-Avon and going to Liver- 
pool, and emigrating to Utah, where he assisted in several newspapers and magazines, and, after 
marrj'ing twice, died in June 1900 in Salt Lake City. 

This Part has a " Chapter for the Novice '* in genealogy, which gives some useful directions, 
and also an Introduction to the Study of English Surnames. The descendants of Richard 
Richards is continued from the previous Part, likewise the genealogy of the West family from 
1676 to 1808. The Part concludes with an account of the Biennial Meeting of the Society, with 
the names of the Members. Reminiscences of Salt Lake district are not much esteemed in

wise the Virginia Legislative Papers, mostly being Dissenters' Petitions in 1776. The Orders in 

* This able Work was published by Messrs. Mitchell Hughes and Clarke, and was dedicated 
to Her late Majesty Queen Victoria, and made a handsome folio volume of 372 pp. with 30 pp. 
of Illustrations, and it contains 61 pedigrees of noble personages and of Norman families as 
well as 158 autographs from Queen Elizabeth to Queen Victoria. By the lamented death of 
Dr. Drake and his patrons this Work is now being offered at £1 : \s. only, originally issued at 


Council of Virginia in ir.5?— If 62 mostly refer to Planters of tobacco and PetitionR of 
:MerchantR, etc. ; and Iheie is a warrant for a grant to the daughter of the Dowager Lady De la 
Warr of £200 a year in consideration of her mother's loss of a pension of £500 granted to her 
for her late husband's services in Virginia. "Gleanings in England," by Messrs. \\ ithmgton 
and Waters, give several wills of gentlemen resident in Virginia. The genealogy of the Brent 
family is still continued, and that of the Robinson family of Middlesex and the Brooke family, 
and the English descent of John Pleasants (1645— 1698) of Virginia; and reviews of hooks 
conclude the Part very satisfactorily. 

The New York Genealogical and Biographical Becord. Vol. XLL, No. 3, for July 1910. 
New York : 226 West 5Sth Street. 
This Part has for frontispiece an excellent portrait of John Stewait Kennedy, and Mr. George A. 
Morrison, A.M., gives an excellent account of him from the time when he was only IB and 
became a clerk in a shipping office in Glasgow. The London firm of William Bird and Co. 
offered him the position of their representative in the United ^States and Canada. In 1 bob he 
began a partnership with Mr. Morris K. Jessup for sale of railroad iron, and the firm eventually 
developed into a banking business, and from that time he was concerned in all the large fanancial 
and railway enterprises^of the day. He died on 31st October 1909. 

The Cromwell and Lewis families are still carried on up to June 1817, and the Digest ott^ssex 
Wills" by Mr. W. Gilbert. Clues from English Archives " gives the will of Richard Jones, 
evidently the Master of the ''Mayflower," in 1638. In an account of the Livingstone family 
there are fourteen members who served in the Army and Navy during the Independence War 
of 1775—1783, with interesting details. The Thacher-Tratcher genealogy is continued by 
Mr J R Totten from 1588 up to 1648, and has three plates of the exterior and interior of 
St 'Barnabas Church in Queen Camel, England, the Rev. Peter Thacher being vicar there m 
1574_1624. The account of the Dutcher family is continued to 1782, and the Proceedings ot 
the Society conclude a very interesting Jr-art. 

A Saunter through Kent ivith Pen and Pencil. By Chables Igglesden. Vol. IX. 1910. 
Ashford : Kentish Express Office. 
We are as pleased with the Chapters on Sissinghurst. Goodneston-next-Wingham, Chartham, 
Loose Coxbeath,Bridee,and Patrixbourne, as we are with the illustrations by Mr. Igglesden. in 
Sissinohurst the introductory plate gives four etchines all neatly drawn, besides three engravings 
included with the tvpe. In Goodneston there is a similar plate, and with the account of Loose 
there is the grouped plate giving four views, besides a pretty engraving of Salt's P^ace. tox- 
heath has but one eneraving giving a view of a camp held there m 1778, and Chartham hjs an 
introductory plate gWing three views neatly grouped. Bridge is similarly illustrated with hye 
views as a front plate, one giving a sketch of the old bridge, and Patrixbourne is illustrated with 
two views of the church and an old picturesque dwelling, besides shewing five old relics ot the 
place The literature of each place is well described, that referring to Loose particularizing 
how vegetation of all sorts is nurtured, fruit trees as well as flowers being clustered everywhere, 
and with a fine stream of water running through the little village with a mill at Springs Pond, 
said to have been built by the Huguenots. At Chartham a number of tumuli containing human 
remains were found, supposed to be those of the ancient Britons and Danes, a decisive 
combat having been foueht with Cssar, the skeletons of the Normans and Britons being in 
groups. The small volume is full of information, and we must congratulate the author upon 
the archteological points he draws his readers' attention to. The price of only 2s. 6d. ought 
soon to exhaust the edition.

Zijt ^j)Imer ffmnilp of Cncjlanti anU 

1 Chief Justice Sir Gerald Aylmer, ancestor of Lord Aylmer, was appointed 
Justice of Common Pleas 23 August 1532, removed 25 June 1534 to the Exchequer, 
and on 12 August 1535 constituted Chief Justice of the Common Pleas. The 
King was about to promote him to the King's Bench when the Earl of Shrewsbury 
opposed his preferment, representing him as an insignificant man and unfit for the 
post. Hereupon King Henry YIII. reproved his minister, Lord Cromwell, for 
recommending so improper a person. Lord Cromwell, in his justification, desired 
his Majesty to converse with Aylmer and asking him, amongst other things, the 
true reason of the decay of Ireland. Sir Gerald answered that it was because 
the estated men, used to reside on and defend their lands and countenance their 
tenants, did now generally dwell in England and left Ireland a prey to the natives. 
The King was very pleased and caused the Absentee Bill to be passed, and Lord 
Shrewsbury thereby lost his Irish estates. Sir Gerald Aylmer acquired enormous 
estates, which one by one passed away through the attainders of his descendants. 
Dollardstown, his chief seat, continued for six generations with his male heirs, and 
was forfeited by James Aylmer in 1663. 

^ 2 The actions of Matthew, 1st Lord Aylmer, will be found in the " Lives of 
British Admirals." He was a very handsome man, and his picture, with his 
son-in-law Norris, hangs in the painted gallery, Greenwich. He was elected in 
nine successive Parliaments M.P. for Dover. He bought large estates in several 
English counties ; those in Kent were sold by the Hon. and Rev. John Aylmer. 
His son-in-law Sir John Norris was very rich; he purchased Hampstead Park, 
Kent, and an account of the property is interesting. His eldest son, John Norris^ 
M.P., was a great man about Court and remarkably handsome. He took up with 
the celebrated Courtezan Kitty Fisher, who, as the nursery ballad informs us, 
found Lucy Locket's pocket. He married her, and she became an excellent wife.' 
She died without children, and John Norris went abroad; he returned with a 
French wife and a number of children. He and hiP eldest son cut off the entail 
and sold the property, now the seat of Viscount Cranbrook. Many years after 
it was discovered that he was not married to the Frenchwoman till his return 
to England, and afcer all the children were born. I found the registry. The 
cutting of the entail was therefore illegal, and the property should have gone to 
the Aylmers of Courtown, of, failing them, to our branch. 

From the marriage of Catherine Aylmer (1st Lord Aylmer's sister) with 
Michael \7arren sprang the famous Admiral Sir Peter Warren. Peter (2nd son) 
was taken, when twelve years of age, to England by his brother Oliver in 1715 and 
placed under the care of his uncle Lord Aylmer, who brought him up a Protestant, 
and placed him in a man-of-war. In 1722 he was made Lieutenant, and in 1727 
Captain. He performed his duties so ably that in a short time he was made 
Admiral of the Red, and died in Dublin in 1752, having married the sister of 
Oliver Delaney of New York, and leaving three daughters. 

The elder brother, Oliver Warren of Warrenstown, also served in the Navy. 

* Compiled by the late Captain James Evans Freke Aylmee. and communicated with 
some additional 2sotes, by Colonel F. A. Aylmes— continued from p. 102. 




His son, the Right Hon. Nathaniel Warren, had a daughter Eleanore, who married 
Robert Crean of Dublin. Thej emigrated to New York in 1838, and her daughter 
Henrietta Agnes Crean married James Gordon Bennett, and was mother of James . 
Gordon Bennett, proprietor of the " New York Herald," and of his sister, who 
married Isaac Bell, junior, of New York City. Henrietta Agnes Crean had two 
sisters, viz., Helena married to Victor, Bishop of New York, and Georgina married 
to Vickenburg of New York. 

Sir Peter Warren's sister married a gentleman of the name of Johnson, and her 
son William Johnson went with his uncle to New York, became a Colonel, and was 
created a Baronet in 1755. His son and heir, Sir John Johnson, was of Mount 
Johnson, Montreal, Canada, and many members of the family now reside there 
(vide Burke's " Peerage and Baronetage," under Johnson). The present Sir Wil- 
liam Johnson is the great-great-grandson of Miss Aylmer and Michael Warren. 

The " Life of John Aylmer, Bishop of London " {temp. Eliz.), was published in 
1701 by John Scrype, M.A. He dedicated it to Admiral Lord Aylmer. The 
dedication epistle is as follows : — 


" That you may still live and be the instrument of much more good to the 
King and Kingdom may I presume to be your ^lonitor. Remember from whose 
hands all your successes and honors flow. Acknowledge him and let him have 
all the glory. 

" The crest and Motto belonging to the other Branch of your family may be 
your remembrances, which is three flourishing slips of the plant AUelujah (as 
herbalists call the Tripolium Acetosum) and a scroll compassing the same with the 
word AUelujah, which signifies * Praise the Lord.' Let that. Sir (which is their 
motto), be your practice. 

" To conclude. If you shall please at your leisure moments to read over these 
historical collections concerning this Prelate, your namesake (as History is the 
Mistress and Instructor of Life), whatsoever you find praiseworthy in him follow. 
Follow whatsoever you observe in him springing from the noble principles of 
religion, conscience and true magnanimity. And let them ever live and flourish in 
the House of the Aylmers. 

"With which wish and prayer I end this address, being, 
< " Sir, etc., etc."

Since the publication of the above pedigree in the " Miscellanea Genealogica et 
Heraldica" for September 1901, I have discovered that two Anthony Harveys, 
both deriving from John Harvey, senior, of Thurley, were contemporaneous in the 
sixteenth century, and these two are completely muddled iu the above pedigree. 
It becomes necessary, therefore, to differentiate them. Of tliese Anthonys one was 
of Columb John in Devon, the other of Swarland in Northumberland. 

1. Anthony Harvey of Columb John in Devon. 
Tlie Harleian MS. in the British Museum, 1052, p. 143, has the following:— 

Johannis Harvey de Thirley, Armiger.= 


Thomas Harvey filius secundus Johannis=|=. . . . filia .... 
Thomas Harvey fil. quartus Thomas^Harbert de Monmouth. 

Richardus' Harvey de Quincam'U. Anthoninus Harvey. 

Davy's "Pedigrees of Suffolk Families" (Add. MS. 19,135, fos. 171 and 180, 

B.M.) states that Thomas Harvey, xirchdeacon of Monmouth, fourth son of Thomas 
Harvey and Jane Drury, had three sons: 1 Henry, 2 Richard of Qumcamell, 

3 Anthony, who married , da. of ... . Wellesden of Devon, and their daughter 

Margaret married Sir Amias Paulet. The earliest mention of this Anthony is to be 
found in Gairdner's "Letters aud Papers, Foreign and Domestic,'" for the year 
1515, where the name appears in conjunction with Thomas Harvey, Heydon, 
Holland, Carew, and Paulet on the " Lists of the King's Accounts of the Revels at 
Tourney " in Flanders, and described as the Wages of War." In 1516 Sir John 
Speke was Sheriff of Devon, and in 1519 his son John was granted "Livery of 
Lands," etc. In 1525 Anthony Harvey of London and Eleanor his wife were 
granted a pardon for having married without the King's licence, and they were 
licensed to enjoy the issues of the possessions of the said Eleanor's former husband 
John Speke of Devon, Somerset, Dorset, and Cornwall. In this same year Thomas 
Speke was " granted Livery of Lands," etc., for all possessions of the said John in 
England, Wales, Calais, etc., and in all the possessions whereof Isabella Speke, 
widow, or Eleanor, wife of Anthony Harvey, were seized for life, belonging to the 
inheritance of the said Thomas Speke. In 1528 a Sir George Speke was employed 
in Lord Courtenay's Household. Thus it is clear that Anthony Harvey of Columb 
John married Eleanor Speke, whose maiden name, therefore, was Eleanor Willesden 
of Devon, by whom he had two daughters Elizabeth and IVIargaret, of whom the 
former married Anthony Cockshed of Chulmleigh in Devon, and died leaving one 
child, a son Anthony Cockshed. The latter, Margaret, thus became the only 
daughter and heir of Anthony Harvey, and she married Sir Amias Paulet. 

From the same source I find that in 1538 Anthony Harvey, S . . . . (i.e. Sur- 
veyor) was appointed Keeper of Chulmleigh Park, and Bailiff of Tappisham and 
Keeper of the King's Park of Mere. In 1514 Anthony, described as tlie " Kin^ s 
servant," was granted lease of the chief messuage of Chulmleigh and lands within 
the circuit of the late park of Chulmleigh, in which year he was also granted the 
lease of the house or chief mansion of tlie manor of Columpton, Devon, with the 
demesne, etc. 


Other references to Anthony are to be seen in tlie " Letters and Papers." In 
1525, iu the account of the personal expenses of Henry, Marquis of Exeter, is the 
cost of cream coloured cloth for the use of Anthony Harvey, and in 1528 Anthony 
gave a bay mare to the Marquis. In 1535 the ^larquis licensed to alienate certain 
manors in Devon to Anthony Harvey, and next year Anthony was licensed to 
feoffee the Marquis of certain hinds in Devon. In 1538 Anthony is described as 
Surveyor to the lands of the Marquis of Exeter, and when in 1541 the Marquis was 
attainted, Anthony was appointed as overseer to the land now in the possession of 
the King. In this year Anthony was granted lands in Devon, and at a meeting of 
the Privy Council at Dover he was appointed as the Lord Admiral's Deputy. 

Still following the " Letters and Papers " I find in 1544: that Anthony Harvey 
of Devon was among the List of Officers to be employed in the Army against 
France, and his name is on the " Roll of Commissions " granted in that year. He 
was detailed to the Staff of Sir Rich. Riche, Treasurer of Augmentations, and was 
one of the Officers authorized " to take charge of provisions " and " to sign all 
bills, etc.," during the war. In 1545 Anthony Harvey, again described as the 
King's servant," was granted the lease of Chulmleigh Manor in Devon, which had 
belonged to the Mai-quis of Exeter, and in that year his name appears on the " List 
of the Court of General Surveyors." After this date his name no longer occurs 
in the " Letters and Papers," but is to be found in the " Acts of the Privy 
Council "for 1547, in which year he was appointed to receive the rent of Wardour 
Castle. In 1551 he was authorized to grant a lease, and in 1553 he, with Sir Peter 
Carew, was concerned in the apprehension of one Brown of Dover, which is the last 
public reference to him I can find. At that time it would seem he was living at 
Colesunt, South Down, as the following extract from " Stemmata Chicheleana " 
indicates: "Robert Haydon of Bowood, co. Devon, married Jone, daughter of 
Sir Amyas Poulett, Kt., Governor of Jersey, who died 1588, by Margaret, daughter 
of Anthony Harvey of Colesunt, South Down." 

By an examination of the " Inquisitiones post mortem" (at the Public Record 
Office) I find that Anthony Harvey died 23 May 1564, and was buried in Exeter 
Cathedral. It states that he died possessed of the manor of Wyndford Ryver, 
CO. Somerset, which he had of the gift of Gercrude, Marchioness of Exeter, in 
5 Philip and Mary, and that his daughter Margaret was of the age of 28 and mar- 
ried Amyas Paulet, Esq., and she was his heir. Thus this Anthony Harvey left no 
son, so that Francis Harvey of St. Breage in Cornwall could not have been his son. 
This Anthony Harvey's tomb in Exeter Catiiedral is a very beautiful structure. 
It presents a shield shewing the arms of Xiernuyt impaled by Harvey. 

2. Anthony Hervey of Swarlaxd in Northumberlaxd. 

Like Anthony Harvey of Columb John in Devon this Anthony also descended 
from John Hervey of Thurley. The following pedigree is abstracted from Lord 
Arthur Hervey's Paper on the " Family of Hei-vey " in the Proceedings of the 
Suffolk Institute of Archaeology," vol. ii., Xo. 7 : — 

John Hervey, Senior, of Thurley=f=Joan, da. of Sir John Nieruuyt. 

Thomas Hervey=pJane Drury of Ickworth. 

William Hervey of Ickworth=pJane Cocket. 


Anthouy Hervey, 5th son=Lucy Lisley. 



This Anthony Hervey is described as fifth son in many pedigrees, and in Davy's 
Pedigrees he is called "Sir Anthony Hervey, Kt., a Pensioner to H. or & to 
further, they nearly all give him a son Francis, while many name his wife Lucy 

The earliest mention of his name is to be found in Gairdner's " State Letters 
and Papers" in 1531, when he was appointed to receive the receipts from the 
Feast of Annunciation of the Convent of Babwell in Suffolk, which had been sup- 
pressed in 1527. In 1541 tin's convent was granted by the King to Anthony 
Hervey, which he, in conjunction with his wife Lucy Lisley, sold in 1543. In 
1542, tlie year in which he married Lucy Lisley, he obtained a lease of Braithwaite 
Manor in Yorkshire. Now Lucy Lisley was the widow of liancelot Heselrigg of 
Swarland, Felton, in Northumberland, as will presently be seen, and it was to Swar- 
land Anthony Hervey and his wife went to live. 

Lucy Lisley was a granddaughter (not daughter as stated in some pedigrees) to 
Sir Humphrey Lisley. She was affianced to Lancelot Heselrigg in her infancy and 
married him in due course. This Lancelot Heselrigg died before 1540, leaving an 
infant son of the same name. This latter it would seem adopted t!ie Hervey 
shield, with argent instead of gules for difference, viz., " Argent, a chevron between 
three slipped trefoils vert,'' as shew^n in the " Elizabethan Roll of Northern Heraldry 
within the Bishoprick of Durham " (Surtees Society), and is the only one of the 
Heselriggs who used it. 

The following note from Gairdner's " State Papers " in 1540 in the " Books of 
the Court of Augmentations," Enrolment of Grants by the Crown, etc., of 
31 Henry VIII. (1540) sufficiently attest that Lucy Lisley (or Heselrigg) was a 
widow in that year ; " Nuneton, Warw. Agnes Oulton p. £40, Nov., to Lucy Hesel- 
rigg and others." So that she was free to marry her second husband, Anthony 
Hervey, in 1542. As Anthony Hervey married Lucy Heselrigg (or Lisley) he would 
no doubt (says J. C. Hodgson, Author of the " History of Northumberland ") hold 
some part of Sw^arland as dower from her husband, an interest which at her death 
would cease. This was the actual fact, for the Probate Registry at Durham 
informed me that " Anthony Hervey owned property at Swarland " before he 
migrated " to Norfolk or Suffolk and Essex." Anthony's name is next found in 
Gairdner's " Papers," vol. xx., p. 197, as follows : — 

" Lisle to Shrewsbury." Bearer, Anthony Harvye, late one of the men at 
arms in the King's town of Boulloign, desires to serve in the north under your 
Lordship, and to sue for the room of Thomas Basforde, who among others was 
lately slain in Scotland. Begs favour for him. London, March 1545." 

AiTthony Hervey's position during the war with France as a Man-at-Arms is 
the same as that he held at Edward the Vlth's funeral, and in both the war and the 
funeral his brother Edmond was present as a Gentleman Pensioner. 

Anthony Harvey of Columb John in Devon during this war was appointed to 
the charge of provisions" and was authorized " to sign bills." So clearly Anthony 
Harvey of Columb John and Anthony Hervey of Swarland were two different men, 
and not one and the same as hitherto supposed. 

In 1553 Anthony Hervey of Swarland (Arch. Soc. Antiq., Lond.) was one of 
the Menne at Arms" at Edward the Vlth's funeral and is placed third among the 
following : Edmond Harvye and Thomas Harvye, Gentlemen Pensioners ; An- 
thony Harvye, one of the Menne at Arms ; John Harvye, Yeoman, and many other 
relatives. In 1554 Anthony's name appears in the Swarland deeds. In Elizabeth's 
reign he became a Gentleman Pensioner to the Queen (Davy's " Pedigrees "). In 
Hervey's (Clarencieux) Visit to Suffolk in 1561 Anthonie, son of William Hervey 
and Jane Cocket, is quot§d, and is the earliest dated pedigree giving his name. 
The following quotation from Davy's " Pedigrees in Suffolk" sufficiently attests the 
identity of Anthony as the husband of Lucy Lisley and father of Francis Hervey. 
It is in manuscript: " Anthony Harvey, son of William Harvey and Jane Cocket, 
mairied Lucy Lisley, daughter of Sir Humphrey Lisley, Kt. They had a son 
Francis," and several other pedigrees to the like effect. 



In 1554 Anthony Hervey's name appears in the Felton Deeds (Hodgson's 
"History of Northumberland"), which in 1578-9 was replaced by that of his 
nephew Francis Hervey of Cressing Temple in Essex, presumably because Anthony 
was dead. Lucy the wife would appear by tlie following note to have next moved 
to Cambridge, where her son Francis was entered at Corpus Christi College in L581 
at the age of 19. In the " List of the Names, Counties, Times of Admission, 
Degrees, etc., of all that are known to have been members of Corpus Christi Col- 
lege" (Gough, Camb. 80, Bodleian), dated 1749, I find, " Harvey, Francis (county 
not stated), admitted 1581. Degree A.M. 1589 ; afterwards to Emanuel College." 
The names of the counties given before 1590 never included Cambridgeshire, from 
which omission it is obvious to infer that a blank under the heading of " County " 
opposite the name of the men on the Lists always meant the Home County, and 
thus I conclude that at that time Francis Hervey and his mother were residing in 
Cambridgeshire. T have, however, failed to find where Anthony Hervey or his wife 
died or were buried, or where their son Francis was born. 

These facts establish beyond doubt that two Anthony Herveys were contem- 
poraneous in the sixteenth century, and that the Anthony Harvey of Colnmb John 
in Devon had no son, while Anthony Hervey of Swarland in Northumberland had 
a son named Francis, who was educated at Cambridge and became Rector of 
St. Breage in Cornwall and the ancestor of the Harveys of Maen in that county, as 
the family tradition has recorded and preserved. 

Christopher Harvey, 

Fleet Surgeon Koyal Navy. 

In March 1869, Part XL, p. 96 of the "Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica,'' 
a reproduction was published of the Exemplification of Arms and Grant of Crest to 
George Smithes of the Court of Wike in the Countie of Somerset, gent., dated 
1602, and in a footnote it was stated that the original exemplification was then in 
possession of Francis Smythies, Esq., of Colchester. This document is still in 
possession of the family, and an effort has been made by Major Raymond Smythies, 
the present representative of the eldest branch, with the assistance of the late 
Dr. George Marshall, York Herald, to draw up a complete pedigree of the Smythies 
family from the time of the above-mentioned grant, and earlier, to the present day. 

Unfortunately, before the completion of the pedigree. Dr. ^larshall died, and 
one link in the chain of ancestry at the end of the sixteenth century still remains 
to be found. The link required is one connecting Rev. William Smythies, M.A., 
Yicar of Walter-Belchamp, Essex, in 1623, with his elder contemporary George 
Smythes* the grantee above mentioned, Alderman and Sheriff of London. Dr. 
Marshall was engaged in making researches with a view to establishing this hnk 
when his illness and lamented death put an end, for the time being, to the in- 
vestigation of the matter. 

* In the grant the name is spelt Smithes, but the grantee in his will signs his name Smythes, 
and this is the spelliog evidently usually used at the time, though the name is often found spelt 
in diflferent ways in the same document. From the time of William Smythies of Grosfields he 
and his descendants, so far as is kuowu, have themselves always spelt the family name 
Smythies, though in print and in early documents it is frequently misspelt. 



In a letter written in 1904 he says, "N'o doubt we shall get the missing link 
sooner or later," and in another letter written about the same time, he writes, I 
should think William the brother of the Alderman is our man." This William was 
a younger brother of the grantee, and is referred to in his ftither's will, dated 1584 
(8, Windsor), as then under age. Since, however, George the elder brother was at 
this date 21, it is probable that William was not much under age, but even if we allow 
for a large difference in the nge of the brothers there would still be ample time for the 
younger one to marry and become the father of William Smythies who was appointed 
Vicar of Belchamp in 1623. Unfortunately the will of William, brother of the 
Alderman, cannot be found, and that of William, Vicar of Belchamp, makes no 
mention of his parents, who were probably dead at the time it was made (1652). 
It may be, however, that the father of the Vicar of Belchamp was not WiUiam 
brother of the Alderman. He may have been the son of John, another and elder 
brother, or of Thomas, John, or George of the Ubiey branch of the family, or of 
one of the sons of George of Wrington. In the absence of documentary proof 
the matter for the present must remain uncertain, but it has been thought 
desirable not to delay any longer placing on record the pedigree of the Smythies 
family, which has been satisfactorily established from the present day to William 
Smythies who was Vicar of Belchamp in 1623, and in addition to give that earlier 
portion which is known, but which at present requires a connecting link to combine 
it with the rest. 

The following circumstances suggest the direction in which a clue may 
eventually be found to the connecting link : — 

1. Elizabeth, daughter of John Smythes of Wrington, married Robert Goodwyn 

and was a contemporary of William Smythies of Witnesham, who as executor 
to his will selected his " dear friend Mr. Robert Goodwin." 

2. William Smythies of Witnesham, judging from his appointments to St. Mary 

Matfelon, St, Giles's, Cripplegate, and St. Michael's, Cornhill, evidently had 
interest in the City of London. 

3. William Smythies, Rector of Mile End, Colchester (son of William Smythies of 

Witnesham), followed two rectors (William and Thomas) of the name of 
Eyre, and before them Thomas Salwate (or Salwey) was the rector. Ap- 
pointments to livings being much influenced by family connections these 
names are significant, for Hester Smythes, daughter of George the Alder- 
man, married Christopher Eyre, and George Smythes himself, in his will 
(proved 1615), refers to his "cosen Arthur Salwey." 

4. The- widow of Thomas Smythies of Lavenham (younger son of William Smythies, 

Rector of Mile End) owned a farrn called Wallass's or Wollis's, and this name 
is the same as the maiden name of the wife of George Smythes the Alderman, 
which is found spelt Woolhouse, WoUis, etc. Id is possible, therefore, that 
the farm may have been the property of Mrs. George Smythes (afterwards 
Lady Savage), and have descended from her to Thomas Smythies of Laven- 

5. William Smythes of Fleet Street, in a will dated 20 November 1657, and proved 

\ in London 16 December following (521, Ruthen), made bequests to his son 
William Smythes, to his son-in-law Robert Tilney, and to his grandchildren 
John, Sarah, Mary, and Elizabeth Tilney, as well as to his wife Elizabeth. 
The place of this William in the pedigree is still uncertain, but since his 
son, William was alive in 1657 he can hardly have been the father of William 
Smythies of Gosfields, unless there has been some error made in the records. 
That WiUiam of Gosfields and the testator were nearly related is, however, 
strongly suggested by the fact that Isaac Smythies, son of the former, was 
appointed Vicar of Dagenham on the death of Tilney^ 2 October 1663.

I am preparing for publication a History of this Yorkshire family, in which T 
hope to clothe the dry bones of genealogy as much as possible with anecdotes of 
interest, family traditions, etc. There will also be in it reproductions of a number 
of portraits. 

The branches of the family of which I shall treat are those located at Gisburne, 
Westby, Burwell, Manningham, etc., in England, and at Rocksavage, Grange, 
Lysterfield, etc., co. Roscommon, Ireland. 

I should like to get into communication with any genealogists who have made 
a special study of any branch of this family, or with others who may be interested. 

I wish to hear of the whereabouts of any portraits or family relics of interest. 

Can anyone inform me if the supposed connection between the Lysters of 
Rowton Castle, Shropshire, and the Yorkshire family has ever been established, 
and if the former are now extinct ?

Sloane Street, S.W.

Carihleana: Being Miscellanemm Papers relating to the Illttory, Genealogy, Topography, and 
Antiquities of the British West Indies. Edited by Vere Langford Oliver, M.R.C.S. 
Vol. I. London : Mitchell Hughes and Clarke, UO Waidour Street, W. 1910. Price 
305. net. 

This is a handsome volume in superroyal octavo, being a work originally issued in quarterly 
parts, edited by Mr. Oliver from the vast collection of genealogical matter which he had col- 
lected together during the last twenty years, preceded as it was by the issue of his " History 
of the Island of Antigua," in three folio volumes, illustrated with maps, portraits, views, and 
coats of arms, a sterling work of tlie highest interest and value, and published in 1894. The 
present Work makes a volume of 450 pp.. finely illustrated by a frontispiece in colours of the arms 
of the Leeward Islands, granted in 1909, and six portraits, seven bookplates, and nine views of 
churches, tombs, and landscapes ; and the whole volume is well printed, and abounds with 
pedigrees and parish registers, and the literary merit of the whole reflects great credit to the 
Editor, who has made the volume as interesting as one could wish. It is bound in a royal red 
cloth cover, and only a limite'd number has been printed of it. 

T?ie Virginia Magazine of History and Biography. Vol. XVITL, No. 4. October 1910. 
Virginia Historical Society. Richmond, U.S.A. 

The Randolph Manuscript commences this Part, giving Seventeenth Century Records, chiefly 
Proclamations during 1682— 1684. This article is followed by the Virginia Legislative Papers, 
and Miscellaneous Colonial and State Documents from 1710 to 1775. The Petitions sej(! to 
Virginia in 1662—1665 are given next, chiefly referring to prisoners and orders from the King 
to the Council, and the Revolutionary Army Orders; and the Virginia Gleanings in England are 
still continued, dating from 1580 to 1617. The genealogy of the families of Brent, Robinson, 
Pleasants, and Brooke is still continued, and the Part finishes with a General Index to the 
volume. - 

ScTiTveizer Archives fiir Heraldik: Archives Hdraldiques Snisses. No. XXIV. 1910. 
Ziirich : Schulthess and Co. 

This Swiss Heraldic Magazine is issued quarterly, and to French and Swiss readers in England 
it would prove very interesting, some of the papers being in German and French, and each 
fairly illustrated with arms, seals, etc., and two portraits. In this Part of 100 pp. there are 143 
engravings, besides four plates of arms, one handsome plate of Baden 1557, and another of 1620, 
and one of the Church of Lausanne of 1662—1684, as well as sixteen family arms in colours. 
The whole as a large octavo forms a very interesting Part for its readers and subscribers, and is 
enclosed in a good paper cover. 

The Utah Genealogical and Historical Magazine. Vol. I., No. 4, October 1910. Utah 
Genealogical Society, 60 East South Temple Street, Salt Lake River, U.S.A. 

This Part is illustrated by a steel-plate engraving of the portrait of Mr. George Reynolds, and 
has a good account of him as a Director of the Utah Society by Mr. Adam Bennion, A..B., who 
closes it by saying : " He found that which God had for him to do, and did it well," A fine 
encomium for any one to deserve. There is a full genealogy of the Richards family, also of the 
West families, numbering twenty-four, with 191 children in all, and the descendants of John 
Williams of Norwich, Connecticut, who left Wales in 1680. Mr. Osborne J. P. Widtsoe has a 
continuation of his Introduction to the Study of English Surnames," drawing attention to the 
making of names by the occupations of many, such as Constable, Marshall (ahorse groom), Porter, 
Chamberlain, Napier (who bought the napkins), Messenger, etc. The street oflacials, too, being 



the Crier, Bellman, and Wayt, for policeman or watchman, carrying a trumpet. The Church 
also founded the names of Parsons, Vicars, Priest, Deacon, Chancellor, Clerk, Sexton, etc. ; 
besides Abbot, Prior. Canon, Monk, Xun, etc. ; thus the Church has multiplied the number of 
surnames generally. The article is interesting. Extracts from Scottish Eegisters give a 
number of names interesting to Scotch arcL^ologists. The Part concludes with Title and 
Index to Volume L 

Jnnah of Tuo Extinct Families. By Colonel John Alexander Temple. Illustrated by 

Portraits, etc. London : F. V. White and Co., 17 Buckingham Street, Strand. 1910. 
This is a well arranged volume of 164 pp. well illustrated by twelve family portraits, two 
illuminated coats of aims, views cf mansions, and two folding pedigrees in facsimile of Henrich 
Luders of Hamburg and William Light of Dorsetshire. The book is very interesting, giving as 
it does a complete narrative of two families now passed away. The Work is well printed, 
and the portraits are excellently produced as separate plates. Altogether it is well worthy of 
many sitbscribers apart from the family intercf-t which relations would feel in its publication. 

Tht New York GeneaJcgical avd Biograpliical liccord. Vol. XLL, No. L October 1910. 
New York : 226 West 58th Street. 
This Part is unusually] thick, making upwards of 160 pp., including the Title and Index of 
Names and Subjects for Vol. XLL, and has a frontispiece, the arms in colours of the " King 
Heraldry," and two other plates, one giving the arms from the Heralds' College in 1611, 
and Plate III. shewing the ticket for admission to a General Meeting of persons with the sur- 
name of King, to celebrate the anniversary in memory of the happy restoration of King 
Charles II. on the 29th May 1703. It is handsomely executed, being surrounded by eighteen coats 
of arms besides the Royal Arms in the centre. There is an excellent Paper on the - Origin of 
the Families of King in Old and New England entitled to bear Arms," written by George Austin 
Morrison, A.M., LL.B., and taking the King of Eltham in Kent as Daniel King of Walbrook> 
London, Citizen and Skinner in 1660. 

The genealogy of the Barnes family of Easthampton by Richard Wynkoop is next given, 
and an account of the Pryer family with aims in colours, contributed by Charles Pryer, is 
interesting, shewing the family to be of Noiman-French origin, and holding lards in England 
from the reign of William the Conqueror. A short account of the New Jersey Hoppers is given, 
besides the Thacher-Thatcher genealogy, of which a long account is shewn, and a plate also of 
the Exterior of St. James's Church at Milton Clevedon, Somerset, where the Rev. Peter Thatcher 
was vicar in 1616—1623, besides a plate of a mural tablet in memory of his son in 1622. He 
was also the Rector of St. Edmund's, Salisbury, in 1623— 1641, of which the church is illustrated 
by an engraving, and by a plate shewing the tombs of the Rev. Peter Thatcher and that of 
Francis Dove, who married his widow in 1641 ; he was his '^verie dear friend," and was a 
merchant of Salisbury and twice Mayor of the City. Mr. J. Henry Lea contributes '• Clues from 
English Archives" from 1660, and a "Digest of Essex Wills" is likewise given 1 y William 
Gilbert, and an account of the Willoughbys of Connecticut by the Rev. A. W. H. Eaton, D.C.L., 
follows. The whole Part is full of interest, and closes the volume excellently with the usual 
genealogical Notices of Books. 

Books for Review and Notices of Forthcoming Works sJiould he addressed to 
Messrs. Mitchell Ilvghes and Clarke at the PuUisJiing Office, 140 Wardo^ir Street, London, W.

pp. 50—55.) 

The preceding Pedigree is the completion of the Basildon branch of the 
Buckeridge Family, and the following notes are intended to shew how the pro- 
perty, greater part of which was acquired by the family in 1522, was diverted from 
its rightful owners, and also to rectify an error made in a Pedigree given in a 
former number wherein it was stated this branch to be extinct. 

Extract from the will of John Buckeridge of Basildon, dated 6 January 
1590 :— 

" Item whereas by my deed indented bearing date the 10^^ day of June in the 
30*^ year of the reign of our Sovereign Lady Elizabeth the Queen's Majesty that 
now is, where in the said deed it is covenanted and granted by me the said John 
Buckeridge unto Thomas Pleydall of Shrivenham in the said county, gent., in con- 
sideration of a marriage to be liad and solemnized between my son John Buckeridge, 
now of . . . ., late deceased, and Katherine Pleydall, one of the daughters of the 
said Thomas Pleydall, that after the decease of me the said John Buckeridge and 
Annis ray wife, all my lands, tenements, and hereditaments in Basildon and Ashamp- 
stead aforesaid in the said county or in any other place elsewhere within this realm 
of England, should be to the use of John Buckeridge my son aforesaid and to the heirs 
male of the body of the said John Buckeridge my son lawfully begotten, and for default 
of such heirs male unto the use of the right heirs of me the said John Buckeridge for 
ever. Wherefore I the said John Buckeridge for default of all those heirs expressed 
on the body of my said son John Buckeridge lawfully begotten as hereafter it 
might or should happen. Item I give, grant, will and bequeath all those my fore- 
said lands, tenements, and hereditaments in Basildon and Ashampstead aforesaid 
in the said county or in any other place elsewhere within this realm of England 
unto my son-in-law Thomas Buckeridge and Margaret his wife my daughter and 
to the heirs male on their two bodies lawfully bee^otten." 

This Thomas Buckeridge, who was of Bowdon, Pangbourne (his will was proved 
in the year 1607), married his cousin Margaret at Basildon 17 January 1585-6. 
They had several sons and daughters, from one of which, John, is descended the 
Pangbourne branch, long settled at Bowdon. 

A further extract from John Buckeridge's will is as follows : — 

" For default of heirs male on the bodies of the said Thomas Buckeridge and 
Margaret his wife lawfully begotten the remainder over of all those my foresaid lands, 
etc., in Basildon and Ashampstead, etc., unto my brother liichard Buckeridge and 
his heirs male on his body lawfully begotten." 

Richard Buckeridge is supposed to have been of Ipsden in Oxfordshire, whose 
will was proved in the year 1617. 

Any expectations the Pangbourne family may have entertained were doomed by 
the following : — 

**Item whereas by my deed of gift bearing date the 20'^ day of June in the . . 
year of the reign of Our Sovereifjn Lady Elizabeth the Queen's Majesty that now 
is I the said John Buckeridge did give, and grant unto ray said son John Bucke- 
ridge, late deceased, all my goods, chattels, and catties, except certain as in the said 
deed it doth appear, now my said son John Buckeridge did by his last will and 
testament leave all those foresaid goods, chattels, and cattk-s before by me given 
unto his son Thomas Buckeridge upon condition that if the said Thomas Bucke-' 



ridge his son did depart this mortal life ^vithout heirs of his body lawfully begotten 
that then all those said goods, chattels, and catties should revert and come to me 
again and them to enjoy as in my first estate, now notwithstanding my said son 
John Buckeridge his last will and testament that if the said Thomas Buckeridge, 
son to my son John Buckeridge, do live until 21 years of age or until the day of 
his marriage Item then I do give grant and release the reversion of all those said 
goods, chattels, and catties unto the said Thomas Backeridge, son to my said son 
John Buckeridge, and to his heirs, executors, administrators, and assignes for ever, 
by this my last will and testament." 

The grandson, Thomas, was baptized at Basildon 4 May 1589, his father being 
buried there on the 10th September of the same year. He was aged 2 years and 
10 days at the time of the inquisition on his grandfather. He married at Chieveley, 
Berks", Elizabeth, daughter of John Pocock of Bradley Court in this village, by 
whom he had a large family. His will, which is dated the 25th December 1652, 
was proved at Westminster 28 June 1653 by his widow. By this will he entailed 
his estates on his five sons and their male issue, in order of age, namely, Thomas, 
Richard, John, William, and Isaac, with this clause : " Provided also farther and 
my will is that if in case my said son Thomas die leaving behind him no son living at 
the time of his decease that then the next Reversioner by virtue of these present shall 
pay unto the daughters of my said son Thomas within the space of twenty years to 
be accounted from the time of his entry one thousand pounds of lawful English 
money." He had bought in 1650 an estate named Combe in Brightwalton for 
£1845 from his brother-in-law Richard Howse (the husband of his wife's sister 
Grace Pocock). This he settled on his third son Richard, Rector of Kingsclere, 
and bequeathed unto his fourth son William all the estate and term of years he had 
to ran in a farm called Rainsford in the parish of Thatcham. His eldest son Tho- 
mas, who married the daughter and heir of Robert Clarke, gent., of Basildon, left 
issue two sons, Thomas and John, and three daughters. He died in the year 1687, 
leaving no will. His eldest son Thomas succeeded him, and by Mary Head his wife 
had an only son Thomas, who died in his father's lifetime, aged 20. The other son, 
John, married Frances Percival of Henley-on-Thames, and by her had an only son 
John. She married, as her second husband, Fulke Salisbury, by whom she had a 
daughter Mary, married to Charles Blaudy of Bread Street. This Charles Blandy 
was a brother of John Blandy of Parley in Chaddleworth and an uncle to the 
notorious and unfortunate Mary Blandy. 

Thomas Buckeridge, whose will is dated 29 May 1713, notwithstanding the 
will of his grandfather, passed over his nephew John Buckeridge, the rightfal heir, 
and with the exception of an annuity left in trast for him, to his "loving friends 
James Stroud of Bradfield, Esq., and Henry Wilder cf Nunhide in the parish of 
Sulham, gent.," left everything to his cousin's son Thomas Backeridge of Speen. 
The latter had married Thomas Buckeridge's niece and sister of Jethro Tull, the 
writer on agriculture. This occasioned a Chancery Suit, and John Buckeridge the 
nephew was non-suited at the Berkshire Assizes in 1714 by what purported to be 
an old deed produced by Thomas Backeridge the legatee. It was a marriage 
settlement said to have been made by Thomas Buckeridge the grandfather on the 
marriage of his eldest son with Elizabeth Clarke, and the Judge said, after making 
this deed he had no power to entail the property as he had done by will on his five 
sons and their male issue. 

Thomas Buckeridge, now the possessor of the property, did not live long to 
enjoy his possessions, for he died in August of the same year leaving no issue, his 
two surviving brothers John and William also dying without issue in 1724 and 
1727. Charles Blandy, who had married Mary Salisbury, the half-sister of 
John Buckeridge, who had died September 1718 s.p,, now claimed the property on 
behalf of his wife. Another suit ensued, and in the year 1727, in the depositions 
of witnesses on behalf of Thomas Buckeridge of Church Oakley, Mrs. Dorothy 
AUibone (formerly the wife of her cousin Thomas Buckeridge of Speen) testifies 
to her late husband having forged the marriage settlement produced by which John 



Buckeridge was non-suited, and "sayeth that on the Saturday before the Assizes 
Thomas Knapp, an Attorne}^ was at Basildon, when she said she heard her cousin 
John Bnckeridg-e the Plaintiff would have the estate, then ye said Mr. Knapp 
answered he held not for that there was a snake in ye grass which Defendant did 
not know of." She further particularizes how the deed was forged. The right 
heir was now Thomas Buckeridge of Church Oakley, son of the Rev. Richard 
Buckeridge, Rector of Kingsclere, by Martha, daughter of William Wythens of 
Grove, Wantage. 

"The Demurrer of Thomas Buckeridge, gent., and Answer to Bill of Complaint 
of Charles Blandy, Citizen and Merchant Taylor of London, and Mary his 
wife. Complainants, 1727." 

"And this Defendant saith that he this Defendant is the grandson to the said 
testator Thomas Buckeridge who made his will in one thousand six hundred and 
fifty-two, which said Thomas Buckeridge had issue Thomas Buckeridge his eldest 
son, Richard his second son, who was this Defendant's father, John Buckeridge 
his third son, AVilliam Buckeridge his fourth son, and Isaac Buckeridge his fifth 
son ; which said John Buckeridge the third son had issue three sons, Thomas, 
John, and William, who are all dead as this Defendant believes without issue. 
That the said William Buckeridge had issue one son William Buckeridge, now 
living, who hath issue divers sons and daughters as this Defendant believes and 
hath° heard. And that the said Isaac is also dead without issue. xAnd this 
Defendant further saith that the said Thomas Buckeridge the eldest son of this 
Defendant's grandfather had issue two sons only, to wit, Thomas Buckeridge who 
dyed in the year 1713 without issue surviving him, and John Buckeridge who 
departed this life long since, leaving issue one son John Buckeridge, the Com- 
plainant Mary's brother, by the mother only, who is also dead as Defendant believes 
without issue. That this Defendant is both the eldest son and heir male of Richard 
Buckeridge who was the second son of the said testator Thomas Buckeridge." 

Thomas Buckeridge of Church Oakley recovered the estates and died possessed 
of them and was buried at Basildon 12 October 1743, unmarried. His only 
brother William, Rector of Stoke Charity, had died without issue in the year 1715. 
The only male heir was at the time of the above Demurrer William Buckeridge of 
Little Hunirerfordin the parish of Hampstead Norris, and although he left issue two 
sons at his death in 1736, William and Isaac, who are both named in his will, his 
cousin ignores them and settles the properties on his sister's son George Noyes, and 
so they continued in the Noyes family. How they were eventually disposed of it 
would be interesting to learn. 

" By Indenture between Thomas Buckeridge of Church Oakley in the county 
of Southampton, gentleman, of the one part, and George Noyes the younger of 
Andover in the county of Southampton, gent., nephew of the said Thomas Bucke- 
ridge, and eldest son of George Noyes of Andover aforesaid and Sarah his wife, 
deceased, one of the sisters of the said Thomas Buckeridge, of the other part, in con- 
sideration of the natural love and affection which he bore to George Noyes the 
younger, his nephew, and for his further advancement he settled premises at Combe, 
etc., and by Indenture, dated 27 April 1736, he had the uses of a recovery intended to 
be suffered inter alia of lands at Basildon ; said Thomas mentioned his nephew 
George Noyes, and Thomas Buckeridge by his will ratified the aforesaid settle- 
ments by him made of his lands at Basildon on his dutiful and faithful nephew 
George Noyes of Andover in the county of Southampton, gentleman." 

The following memorandum is written on the back of a letter which is addressed 
to Mr. I. Buckeridge, Thatcham, Berks, bearing date 29 February 1792, and is 
supposed to have been made by Isaac Buckeridge, as the writing corresponds with 
that of his (first) will made 5 July 1791. (The notes are incorrect in several 




Basildon Estate. 

** Thomas Buckeridge eujoyed the estate, v^-ho had five brothers ; it is supposed 
the above-named Thomns Buckeridge attempted or cut off the entailment and' 
gave the estate to one Noice of Andover, who was married to Thomas Buckerido-e's 
sister." ^ 

"That time a Thomas Buckeridge of Basildon, supposed uncle of the above- 
named Thomas, commenced a suit at law against the Buckeridges of Speenhamland, 
and he recovered the estate by a trial at Reading Assizes. Mv grandfather William 
Buckeridge was at the trial, and the above-named Thomas 'Buckeridge of Basil- 
don said to him, ' William, now the estate is in its right line, and the estate is thine 
as soon as the breath is out of my body,' but he cut off the entailment or attempted 
so to do and gave it to one Noice of Andover who had married his sister." 

" The Basildon Buckeridge had five brothei-s ; mv srrandfather was a son of one 
of them, it may be about the fourth. My grandfathe^- was married at Old Basins; 
HI Hampshire, as my father says he weiit^here to prove the marriage or birth o'f 
him, not certain which, and says grandfather was born at Aldermaston, and that 
Buckeridge was uncle or first-cousin to him. Basildon Buckeridge died about fifty 
years (ago) ; my father was at the burial and he said he was the right heir to 
Basildon estate." 

0untireti. tiau. of mnilmn tljt Conqueror/ 

For the information and delectation of the descendants of this royal personage, 
of whom there are many thousands to-day, here, in the sister Isle, and tiirougholit 
the Empire, I opine that they will welcome an account of the on'gmal place of 
sepulture and the present gite of their illustrious and Hoval Eponvm, likewise a 
description of the beautiful marble tombstone erected to her memory, miraculously 
recovered, and now safeguarded for all time. (Gough's - Sepulchral Monu- 
ments, where on p. 1 appears a plate of the head-piece of Gundred's monument.) 
rhotographs of the interior of the chapel, tomb, cysts, etc., are shewn oa the 
following page. 

Gundred was the fifth daughter of William the Conqueror (by his wife Maude 
whom he married in 1053 and was buried at Caen, 1083, iu the Nunnery of the 
Holy Irmity she had founded), and was married to William, Earl of Warren in 
^ormandy, and first Earl of Surrey in England. (It was her mother who wrought 
the Bayeux Tapestry which depicts figures pointing to a flaming star, which is 
thought to be a representation of Halley's Comet.) 

A long way down the line, I am one of her issue through the marriao-e of her 
daughter Gundred, who (as the widow of Ptoger de Bellamont, 2nd Earl of Warwick) 
was married to Sir William de Lambert (deriving from Lambert, Count of Mons 
and Louvain, born circa 940 a.d., ancestor of the illustrious Lamberthii Family of 
liologna, whose descendant, Prosper Laurence Lambertini, was elected Pope 
1/ August 1740 as Benedict XIV.). Sir William de Lambert was ancestor of the 
Lamberts of Calton in the Craven, Yorkshire, of which line Margaret, daughter of 
John Lambert, was married to John Hewetson of York (born circa 1498) pro- 
geiiitoi' of the "Hewetsons of Ireland." Likewise I have descent from the 
Illustrious - Bollo " (baptized 912, died 931), the great Duke of Xormandy, whose 
mth descendant was William the Conqueror, the concatenation bein^r throuo-h the 
femous families of - Clifford," and " Drew " of Devon, of which latter Catherine 
Kilkenny^ ^^^'^^ed circa 1756 to the Rev. John Hewetson of Suirville, County

Caen wS he intended to lie after his decease, the Conqueror had caused several 
hou es to be Jul d down for enlarging the area, and among them one whose owner 
harveceived no satisfaction for hil loss. The son of that person, Ascelin 
Arlhur observing the grave to be dug on that very spot of ground which had been

7775 to St. John's Church, Sonthover, the nearest place to its origiml sitc^ 
•placed inside and at the south-west corner of the church, where, until 18i7, it wa. 
to be seen on the floor within a pew, with the following inscription over it :- 

\Yithin this pew stands the Tombstone 
of GuNDRADA, daughter of William the 
Conqueror, & wife of William the first_ 
Earl of Warren, which having been deposited 
■ over her remains in the Chapter-house 
of Lewes Priory, and lately discovered 
in Isfield Church, was removed 
to this place, at the expense 
of William Bur reel, Esq^« 
A.D. 1775. 

Two years later another antiquary, interested himself in perpetuating the 
memory of the Earl, as set forth in the following paragraph. 

To his other possessions he added (not wav of grant however) W

purse he put a Latin inscription over the gateway of the cast e. This the writer 
found in 1901 to shew but few signs of obliteration, and is as follows :— 

^ . Ne

arch there is —

William, Earl Warren, 
who in old days dwelt here, 
and was 

a loyal Champion of our Liberties 
from perishing 
like his own Castle 
by the ravages of time, 




Richard Barnes 
at his own expense 
erected this Gateway 
in the year 

[Capital letters are employed tlironghout in both inscriptions.] 

So far I have dealt only with Gnndred's tombstone (that of the Earl having 
never been found) ; now I have to speak of the mortal remains of both. 

In the year 1845, dnring excavations through the Priory grounds for the South 
Coast Railway, the leaden chests containing the remains of the Earl and his 
Countess were discovered, and deposited temporarily beneath Gnndred's fomhstone 
in the south-west corner of St. John's Church, Southover, as above mentioned, 
where they i-emained until 1847. In this year a beautiful Norman Chapel was 
erected by public subscription, adjoining the present vestry and chancel. 

Previous to re-interring the remains in the Norman x:hapel both cysts were 
opened to ascertain if there were any contents, wliich was found to be the case. 
New cysts were made and used, and the ancient ones preserved and placed in two 
recessed arches in the southern wall ; they are both in a splendid state of preserv- 
ation, except that of the Earl, it having lost much of its leaden casing. Across 
the upper part of the one in the right ai'ch is the name GVNDRADA in relievo, 
whilst upon that in the left arch a])pears WILL [s/c-] only, the i-emainder of the name 
having disappeared with tiie lead. In the recess of the northern wall, in which is 
the doorway from the church, was placed the inscribed tablet put up in 1775 over 
Gnndred's monument, leaving out the words " within this pew stands," to accord 
with its present position. 

Gnndred's tombstone is of bhick marble, five feet five inches long, two feet 
broad at head and twenty-two inches at foot ; it is finely sculptured witli foliage 
and birds round its edge and lies east and west in the centre of the chapel. 

The inscription is in Leonine verse, and contains a turn of sentiment unusual 
in monastic epitaphs. The first line apprises her illustrious descent, the second 
alludes to her merit in first introducing into England the Cluniac Order, and 
reform and perfecting of the Benedictine. Then follows a beautiful allusion to 
the character of the two sistei's Martha and Mary in the Gospel, with the happy 
application and the contrast between them. The poet, concealing the blameable part 
of Martha's attachment to the world, ingeniously represents her worldly-mindedness 
as directed to and governed by the best views, those of providing for the necessaries 
of life and relieving the distressed. Enough remains of the third line to shew that 
the comparison gains here, that the first word is the name of Martha, and that her 
example was followed by Gundred, in charitable distributions, whilst in her devo- 
tion she copied the example of the other sister, who sat at Jesus' feet attentive to 
His doctrine. 

The inscription on her tomb (each letter being an ornamental capital), as 
follows, runs round the borders of the marble and down the middle : — 

Stirps, Gundreda, ducum, decus evi, nobile germen, 
Intnlit ecclesiis Anglorum balsama morum : 
Mar[tis or tha] .... 
.... vit miseris, fuit ex pietate Maria. 
Pars obiit Martha, supercst pars magna Marie. 
0 pie Pancrati, testis pietatis & equi, 
Te facit heredem, tu clemens suscipe matreiu. 
Sexta Kalendarum Junii lux obvia carnis 
Ifregit alabastu .... 
\_The lower end of the sione is somewhat broJcen.'] 

The chaste and elegantly-decorated floor of the chapel displays the shield of the 
Earl — Chequy or and azure. 



In the church, near the door of the chopel, a Visitors' Book is kept, in which 
contributions are recorded for the upkeep of both monument and chapel. Upon 
glancing through the book one may observe the following entries : — 

1902, March 7. C. W. and E. J. Purves, Pointfield House, Kelso, Scotland.

1909 can be seen a long and interesting account by ^'Viator " of the descendants 
of William the Conqueror.

^3etitsm ot f^ernes of jHattienpaup 
in #alIo\»aj>** 

Note. — The " Herries Peerage Case Minutes of Evidence," frequently cited as 
an authority in this pedigree, were printed by order of the House of Lords during 
the hearing (18i8 — 1858) of tiie successful claim of Mr. Constable-Maxwell to tlie 
dignity of Lord Herries of Terregles, The charters relating to Maidenpaup, 
of which copies are printed in these minutes, were stated in evidence to be the 
property of its then owner Mr. Costou. 

Arms.— The seal (illustrated in Sir W. Eraser's '* Book of Carlaverock," i. 586, 
11. 528) of Archibald Herries of Maidenpaup, appended to a document of 1561, 
shews a mullet between three herissons or hedgehogs. 

I. Roger Herries is named as youngest of the three brothers of Andrew, 
" sone and apperande ar to Harbert (1st) Lord Heris " in this Andrew's contract 
of marriage dated 25 November 1495 (Eraser's ''Douglas Book," iii. 149). He 
must have been then considerably under the age of 21, for xlndrew (born about 
1477) was not at that time of " lauchfull nor parfiie age" (Eraser's ''Book of 
Carlaverock," ii. 451). The Lords of Council ordered, 26 June 1517, provision to 
be made from Lord Herries's lands for Elizabeth "dochter of umquliile Andro 
(2Qd) lord heris," on her complaint that iier " Eme (uncle) Roger heris .... 
tutor " to her " brodir ye (3rd) lord heris," then of " tender age," had refused to 
allow " ane pennyworth " for her support (" Herries Peerage Case Minutes," 
p. 112, No. 67). Vedast Neilson personally gave sasine, 6 August 1518, in 
accordance with a charter of his, of the lands of Roundfell in his lordship of 
Maidenpaup to Roger, brother-german of the late Lord Herries, Bartholomew and 
Fiorentius Herries being among the witnesses ; and a Crown Charter of 5 June 
1520 grants to " Rogero herys fratri germane quondam .... Andree domini 
herys " and his heirs the lands of Maidenpaup in the stewartry of Kirkcudbright, 
resigned by the same Vedast Neilson {ibid, pp. 113, 114, Nos. 69, 70). The Lords 
of Council ordered, 23 July 1529, "Roger hereis of Madinpap " to cease from 
molesting "William (3rd) lord heris" and his mother, on their complaint that he 
and his accomplices were daily spoiling and oppressing their tenants on the lands 
of Terregles, putting and hoMing them in pits (prisons) and fetters, reiving their 
goods and laying their ground waste {ihid., p. 113, No. 68). Rogey Herries 
probably died about Martinmas 1536. He was succeeded by — 

IL Archibald Herries. A "Responde Book" has an entry of 1 December 
1536 concerning money due to the Crown for the sasine given to Archibald 
"Hereis" of the nine merk lands of "Madinpape .... existentium in manibus 
regis termini Sancti Martini ultimo preteriti sasina non recuperata " (Exch. Rolls 
of Scot., xvi. 617). William, 3rd Lord Herries, had, 28 April 1543 (Reg, Mag. 
Sig. under date), a Crown Charter of Reidcastle in the stewartry of Kirkcudbright 
for himself, Kathei'ine Kennedy his wife, and the heirs male of their marriage, 
which failing (as happened), for his nearest heirs male. On 14 March 1561-2 
Archibald " Heres de Madinpaupe," as " legittimus et propinquior heres . • • • 
quondam Willelmi domini heres filii patrui sui," had sasine of Reidcastle, " Dauid 
Heres in Conneving" being among the witnesses. The Crown precept (recited at 
length In the instrument of sasine, " Herries Peerage Case Minutes," p. 116, 
No. 72) twice states that William (3rd) Lord Herries was son of the uncle 
{i.e.j Andrew, 2nd Lord) of Archibald Herries, who is wrongly called by Sir 
W. Fraser (" Book of Carlaverock," 1. 586) Irother of this 3rd Lord. Archibald 
"Hereis de Madinpaup ac heres raasculus quondam Willielmi domini Hereis," 

* Communicated by David C. Herries. Esq., 53 Warwick Square, London, S.W., who 
would be glad of any corrections or additions to this pedigi-ee. 



granted Ileidcastle, by Charter dated 22 March 1561-2 (recited in the Crown 
Charter of confirmation of 17 x^^ugust 1562— see " Herries Peerage Case Minutes," 
p. 39, No. 21), to Sir John ]\raxwell of Terregles and his wife Agnes^ Herries for 
a sum of money paid him in his "magna et cognita necessitate." A Crown 
Charter of 1 May 1567 confirms a Charter (dated 28 April 1567, recited in the 
confirmation, ibid., p. 117, No. 73) of Archibald Herries selliug the six pound land 
of Maidenpaup to his " filio et heredi apparenti georgio heris et Jonete gordoun 
ejus conjugi," aud the heirs of their marriage, for a price paid him in his " magna 
urgente et cognita necessitate," and directing David "Hereis in madinpaup" and 
his (David's) son Thomas to give them sasine. 
Archibald Herries had issue : — 

1. George, of whom later (Xo, IIL). 

2. John. On 22 January 1591-2 George " Hereis of Madinpap," " Johnne 

Hereis, brother of the said George," and "lohnne Hereis his son," 
found surety that they would not harm " Mathew Hereis in Larg- 
langlie." (P.C. Reg. iv., 569.) 

3. Roger.: On 22 June 1593 "Walter Hereis of Knokmchynnoch 

became surety that " Mathew Hereis in Lochrutongait " would not 
harm " George Hereis in Madinpap, Johnne and Archibald Hereis- 
sis his sons, Johnne and Roger Hereissis, his brothers," and others. 
\md., v., 594.) 

Archibald Herries had perhaps other issue. The testament (dated 30 January 
1604), inventory, etc., of Robert Herries, merchant, burgess of Edinburgh, who 
died 1 February 1604, given up by his relict Margaret Dickson, David Dickson, 
" Comptar Wardane " in his Majesties "Cunyie house" (Mint), and others, were 
confirmed at Edinburgh, 3 July 1604. Among his debtors named m the inven- 
tory were .... Herries of Mabie, Robert Herries in Crochmoir, Roger Herries, 
burgess of Dumfries, and his uatural son Alexander, and John Herries, "minister 
at Newbotill." The testator left legacies to the following of his own name : to 
his servant Robert, son to John Herries his younger brother ; to the said John, 

his youngest brother ; to , daughter to Roger Herries, his brother ; to , 

daughter to the said Roger (who as his brother and burgess of Dumfries was 
served his heir special "in dimidia parte tenementi in burgo de Edinburgh," 
25 February 1604 ; see Ediu. Retours, No. 124) ; to Jonet Herries, his 
sister, for a help to her aud her bairns ; to Margaret Herries, his eldest 
sister; to Margaret Herries, his sister natural, to help her and her bairns; 
and to his spouse Margaret, who died 23 January 1607, as appears from the 
confirmation at Edinburgh, 7 May 1607, of her will (dated 28 December 1606), 
inventory, etc., given up by her brother-german David Dickson. Most of her 
legatees were children of her sister Marion, wife of Umquhile James " Bartane," 
tiie only one of her husband's name being John Herries, described as Minister of 

Newbattle. • i r i • -n i 

Were the John and Roger mentioned as his brothers in the will of this Kooert 
Herries identical with the two younger sons of Arcliibald Herries mentioned above ? 
John is a common name, but" the combination of John and Roger (a less common 
one, but borne by the founder of the Maidenpaup family) suggests an affirmative 
answer to this question. If they were, then Robert, the Edinburgh burgess, and 
his sisters named in his will were also Archibald's children.* 

* Robert Herries, described as son of John Herries, minister in Newbattle (which John is 
named in the inventory of Robert Herries. the Edinburgh burgess, and m the will of his widow 
Margaret), was apprenticed to James Lamb, tailor in Edinburgh, 15 January 1600. cEdm. Keg. 
of Apprentices, Scottish Record Soc.) Was he identical with the Robert described m the will 
of Robert the burgess in 1604 as his servant and as son of his youngest brother John ? If so, 
then this brother John was the minister of Newbattle and therefore probably not the John, 
younger son of Archibald Herries of Maidenpaup, who is not described as a minister in the Privy 
Council Registers in 1592 aud 1593. John and Robert, however, are both very common names, 
and Robert°Herries, the bursess, does not call his brother John a minister in his will, (tor 
John Herries, minister of Ormistou 1576. and of Newbattle 1583, see Scott's " Fasti,'' i., pt. i., 
293, .300, where, however, his parentage is not given.) 



III. George Herries of Maideiipaup and Terranghtie and his wife Janet 
Gordon bought jMaidenpaup in 1567 from his father Archibald as above related. 
He signed, 29 September 1604, as ''george herisz olf tarrawchtie," a charter 
granting the six pound laud of Maidenpaup to Joanni hereis meo filio et heredi 
apparent! et Elizabethe ]\Iakclellane ejus conjugi" in conjunct fee and to the heirs 
male of the said John whatsoever ''cognomen et arma de hereis gerentibus," in 
completion of a marriage contract (the marriage being solenmized immediatelv 
afterwards) between him'self on behalf of his son John on tiie one part and William 
JiPclellane de balmangane .... pro elizabetha m^clellaue ejus filia" on the other 
part, executed in 1589 and registered "in libris commissariatus de Kirkcudbright." 
(" Herries Peerage Case ]\Iinufes," p. 119, No. 74.) On 14 December 1615 he. in 
fulfilment of a contract of the same date between himself as patrem ac adminis- 
t]*atorem " of his son George (John is probably meant) on the one part, taking 
upon himself the onus for his said son, and William " Hereis apparentem de Madin- 
pape," his grandson on the other part, granted the nine merk land of ^laidenpaup 
to the said William " Hereis meo nepoti et heredibus suis masculis cognomen et 
Arma de Hereis gerentibus," John Hereis in Brakothe," and Archibald " Hereis 
in Bogrie," were witnesses to this charier (ibid., p. 120, No. 75), which was granted 
without the royal assent for a crown charter of 26 December 1615 grants to Charles 
Maxwell " de Tarrachtie" the six pound (six pounds and nine merks were the same 
value) lands of Maidenpanp " que fuerunt Georgii Herreis de Tarrauchtie de rege 
tente per servitium warde et regi devenerunt ratione recognitionis ob alienationem 
absque regis consensu factam." (Reg. Mag. Sig. under date.) Another crown 
charter of 17 February 1624 grants the nine merk land of Maidenpaup resigned by 
George "Hereis de Terauchtie" to William Maxwell of Kirkhouse. {Ibid.) 
Notwithstanding these last two charters the Herries family still possessed Maiden- 
paup in ] 629. 

Terranghtie (in the parish of Troqueer and Stewartry of Kirkcudbright) so 
often mentioned had once belonged to an earlier George Herries of Mabie (of his 
family the writer hopes to give a pedigree in a future number) bat had been seized 
with Mabie and other lands of his by the Crown and sold to the Earl of Bothwell, 
20 October 1506 (ibid,), tor a sum of money making up the amount of certain fines 
that had been imposed upon him. Most of these lands were eventually regained 
by the Mabie family, but Terraughtie was sold by Lord Bothwell in 1539 {ibid, under 
date of 25 July) 'to AYilliam, 3rd Lord Herries, and it was probably as a tenant 
under the Lords Herries that George Herries of Maidenpaup occupied it. He was 
most likely the " George Herreis of Terrawchtie," who was " spaired being too 
young," when the rest of the hostages of John, Master of Maxwell, were hanged in 
1548 by the English when he deserted them for the Scottish side to gain his wife 
Agnes siio jure Lady Herries. (See the " Historical Memoirs," purporting to 
be an abridgement by one " J. P." of Memoirs composed about 1656 by John, 
7th Lord Herries, later 3rd Earl of Nithsdale, printed by the Abbotsford Club 
in 1836, pp. 22-23; for this story of the hostages see also the "Scots 
Peerage," ed. Sir J. B. Paul, iv., 409-10.) The charters mentioned above shew 
that George Herries of Maidenpaup was certainly living in 1615 and apparently in 
1624, so he would have been no doubt very youthful in 1548. He was awarded 
compensation in 1597 for the burning of " Tarauchtrie " by the "Goodman of 
Netherbye " and others. (" Border Papers," ii., 308.) 

He had issue, as far as has been discovered : — 

1. JoHX, of whom presently (No. TV,). 

2. Archibald. On 17 April 1597 "George Herreis of Madinpap . . . ., 

Johnne Herreis his eldest son . . . ., and Archibald Herreis also his 
son," found surety that they would not harm " David Herreis of 
Watterheid." (P.O. Pieg. v., 678-9.) John " Abircrombie servitor 
to Patrik, Earl of Orknay," complained to the Privy Council, 
19 November 1612, that on'^the previous 29 October as he was going 
along the street of Dumfries to his " ludgeing house " after supper 



between 8 and 9 at even, Archibald, "son of George Hereis of 
Terrauchtie," whom he " nathir knew nor yit had ever offendit," 
waylaid him and quietly pulling out his sword let him pass, and 
then " behind his bak feirslie set upouii him," wounded him and 
would have murdered him ''but for the providence of God and his 
own better defence." Archibald Eerries was denounced rebel 
for not appearing to answer the cliarge. In January 1613, ^how- 
ever, he was siipplicatinc: the Council to be " putt to liberty," and 
on 21 January 1613 he found surety that he would keep ''our 
Souerane Lordis peace," and appear before the Council on six days 
warning to answer to anything "laved to his charge." (P.C. Keg. 
ix., 491, 537-8, 514.) 

IV. John Hehries of Maidenpaup. All that is known of him and his wife 
Elizabeth, daughter of William i\Iaclellan of Balmangan (for whose pedigree, 
though she is not herself mentioned, see the "Scots Peerage," ed. Sir J. B. Paul, 
title 'Maclellan, Lord Kirkcudbright, v. 270), has been already related in the 
accounts of his father George and his uncles John and Roger. He died before 

-^15 May 1629. His son— 

V. AYiLLiAM Herries had a charter of Maidenpaup in 1615 from his grand- 
father George Herries as related above. On 15 May 1629 " Willielmus Herreis 
filius legittimus quondam Joannis Herreis de Madinpape" sold to James Neilsou, 
merchant burgess of Dumfries, and his heirs, the six pound land of Maidenpaup 
*'in parochia de Suthick et infra senesculatum de Kirkcudbryt" to be held of the 
granter and his heirs whose immediate superiors were the King and his successors 
(" Herries Peerage Case Minutes," p. 122, No. 76.) 

* Whether William Herries left issue has not been discovered. He married 
Agnes Johnstone, who was denounced rebel by the Privy Council, 22 Nov. 1627, 
on the report of the Presbytery of Dumfries that she had been excommunicated on 
failure to answer to a charge of Papistry. Tiie Council, 22 January 1628, ordered 
the Sheriff of Dumfriesshire to convocate the lieges in arms and apprehend " Agnes 
Johnstoun, spous to William Hereis of Madinpalp," and others for failing to 
answer to the same charge. These people, however, " Agnes Johnstoun, spous of 
William Hereis of Madinpaup," amongst them, were still at large in the following 
March, and were being " furneist with all things necessar and comfortable unto 
thame to thair encouragement to continew in thair Popish opiniouns and errours." 
The Council ordered, 28 December 1628, various acts against Papists to be put in 
force against them. (P.C. Reg., 2nd Ser., ii., 128, 202, 263-4, 535,) 


EULLER Pedigree ("Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica," Fourth Series, 
Yol. III., p. 282). George Fuller (who married Catherine Austin) is shewn as son 
of William Fuller (by his wife Elinor Hodder). He should have been set down as 
brother of this William.

0omerj>, €arl of ^Ijrctosijur^ antu ^niulicl, 

For many centuries, and by many chroniclers and historians, during the greater 
portion of this period, of whom we may mention Collins, Kelham, Ellis, Nash, and 
by other writers who have followed in their wake, the descent and genealogy of 
lirso D'Abitot, the High Sheriff of Worcestershire and Constable of the Castle of 
Worcester, and of his brother Robert Despenser, the Steward, both by appointment 
of William the Conqueror, it has been erroneously stated that they were brothers 
to Hugh, Earl of ^lontgomery, afterwards Earl of Arundel, and in consequence of 
this erroneous statement I avail myself of the hospitality of your columns to set 
the matter at rest, once and for ever, by giving you the following particulars in 
proof of the true historic record. 

In 1788 Robert Kelham of Lincoln's Inn, and author of the " Norman Diction- 
ary," brought ont one, if not the most exhaustive and authoritative work on the 
Domesday Book (illustrated), containing an account of that ancient record, with 
an Alphabetical Table of the Tenants m capife in the several counties contained in 
that Survey, and under the head of Gloucestershire, he refers to Urso de Abetot as 
follows : — 

He was the brother to Hugh de :Montgomery, Earl of Arundel ; he is some- 
times called Urso Yicecomes, and Urso de Worcester, in regard he was hereditary 
Sheriff of Worcestershire and Constable of the Castle of Worcester. He was one 
of William's great Counsellors. Emmeline, his only child, was wife to Walter de 
Beauchamp, a great Baron." 

Again, the same authority refers to Robert Despenser as follows : — 

He was Steward to William the Conqueror, and one of his Barons, and had 
great possessions in the Counties of Lincoln, Leicester, and Gloucester. He was 
brother to the Earl of Montgomery, and to Urso de Abetot, hereditary Sheriff of 
the Counf-,y of Worcester, and progenitor to the noble family of Spencer, now Duke 
of Marlborough."* 

This statement of Robert Kelham in his "Domesday Book, Illustrated," that 
Urso D'Abitot was brother to Hugh de Montgomery, Earl of Arundel, is incorrect, 
and the authority that he gives from Collins' "Peerage" is also incorrect, and 
as we are not informed by Collins from whence he obtained this statement, we 
must conclude that he had no authority for it, and that it must have beeu a freak 
of his imagination, and therefore an historic error. 

The genealogy of Hugh de Montgomery there can be no doubt about, for he 
was connected by marriage with Richard I., Duke of Normandy, and bis son, 
Roger de Montgomery, accompanied AYilliam the Conqueror in his invasion of 
England, and commanded the centre of his army at the Battle of Hastings, and 
was afterwards rewarded with the Earldoms of Shrewsbury, and Sussex, and 

* Collins gives no authority or proof that Robert Despenser was the progenitor of the noble 
family of Spencer or the Dukes of Marlborough. There is no justification for this statement, aud 
a negative is easily proved, as Robert le Despenser was never married, and left no legitimate 
issue. . " 



In support of this statement of fact we s^ive for our authority as follows. 
In Ducarel's " Anfrlo-Xorman Antiquities " it is stated : — 

"This Roger de Montgomery was son of 'Hugh de Montgomery and Josceline 
bis wife, daughter of Turolph, Lord of Pont Audemer, by Wiva, sister to Gunnora, 
wife of Richard I., Duke of Normandy. 

" 8oon after tlie reduction of En^rland, Wihiam the Conquei-or conferred the 
Earldoms of Arundel, Chichester, and Shrewsbury on this Roger, who was at that 
time styled Oximensiam Yicecomes, and had commanded the centre of William's 
Army at the Battle of Hastings. 

"At the dedication of this Monastery of Troarn, he endowed it with the Manor 
of Horkesly alias Horsly in Gloucestershire, where a Prior and Monks, dependent 
on this Abbey, soon after settled." 

In Banks's " Dormant and Extinct Baronage of Enirland " it is stated : — 

"Roger de Montgomery, a Xorman Xobleman of eminent distinction, came into 
England with AYilliam the Conqueror, Anno 1066, and by him afterwards was 
rewarded with the Earldoms of Shrewsbury and Sussex, otherwise Arundel. 

" Ifugh and Robert de Montgomery, his sons, successively succeeded ; but the 
latter rebelling against Henry I. forfeited thereby all his estates in England, as 
under the head of Arundel has already been set forth." 

Again, in Banks's "Baronage," the title of the Earldom of Arundel is clearly 
set forth : — 

_ " The Earldom of Arundel is the sole title now known to be enjoyed by tenure ; 
the same having been solemnly adjudged in Parliament to rise from the. possession 
of the Castle of Arundel only. 

" The first that had this title was Roger de Montgomery, nearly allied with the 
Conqueror, before whose arrival in England he was Commander for him against 
Geoffrey, Earl of Anjou. 

He was also one of the Council which proposed the invasion of England. 

" He led the centre ef the Norman Army in the famous Battle of Hastings, where 
King Harold was slain, and his Crown obtained by the Duke of Normandy. 

" After the Duke's Coronation as King of England, Roger de Montgomery 
accompanied him again into Normandy, and at his return to England was advanced 
to the Earldom of Arundel. 

" He was a great scourge to the Welsh, and often victorious over them. He 
gave his name to the town of Montgomery, which, with the Castle, he won and 

He was slain by the Welsh temp. William 11. 
" He was twice married : (1) Mabilia, daughter and heir of William de Talvace 
(grandson of Ivo de Belesme) ; (2) Alice, daughter of Everard de Prisace, a 

"By Mabilia he had issue Robert, Earl of Belesme in Normandy; Hugh; 
Roger; Arnulph, progenitor of the Brydges, Dukes of Chandos ; and Philip, the 
ancestor of Montalexander in Ireland. Also four daughters : Emma, Abbess of 
Almayne ; Maud, wife of Earl of Morton ; ^Mabel, wife to Hugh de Novo Castello ; 
and Sybil, wife to Robert Fitz-Hamon, Earl of Corboil, Normandy. 

" IJpon the death of the last Earl of Arundel it fell to the Crown, who revived it 
in William, son of William de Albini, who came in with the Conqueror." 

In Collins' " Peerage," vol. ii.,p. 120, there is an interesting reference to Roger 
de Montgomery, of which the following is an extract : — 

Gemiticensis, Ordericus Yitalis, and other writers of the Norman history, 
give an account that Roger de ^Montgomery, the first Earl of Arundel and Shrews- 
bury, was the son of Hugh, Earl of Montgomery in Normandy and of Josceline his 
wife, daughter of Turnulf of Pont-au-de-mer (brother to Purchetil, father to Anchc/- 
till de Harcourt) by Wiva, sister to Gunnora, wife of Richard I., Duke of 
Normandy, great-grandfather to King William the Conqueror. 

" The first mention of the said Roger is that he was Oximensium Yicecomes, and 
after that, when Geoff'ery Mertel, Earl of Anjou, a person of hauirhtv spirit and 

^ 'q 2 


prosperous in his military attempts on his neighbours, had got the Castle of 
Alencon beloiiojng to William, Duke of Xormaudv, it so irritated the Duke that he 
forthwith kmf siege to the Castle of Daufront in Anjou. Whereupon the said 
Geoflery, marchins: with no small power to relieve it, the Duke sent tins Roger de 
Montgomery and^William Fitz-Osborne (both gallant young men) to discover his 
strength ; who meeting with the Earl and representing to him the courage and 
resohition of their Duke, he furiously threatened that within a day or two he 
would manifest to the world that the valour of an Anjovin should far surpass that 
of a Norman ; arrogantly vaunting what coloured horse he would ride on and 
what arms he would put on. But they with as much disdain magnified Duke 
William; told him the like of his horse and arms ; and so returning, encouraged 
their party to fight. 

"This Roger was also of that Council which formed the invasion of this realm, 
and on October 14, 1066, led the centre of the army in that famous Battle of 
Hastings in Sussex, wherein the Crown accrued to the Conqueror, and in memory 
whereof he built a town and Abbey, which retains the name of Battle Abbey. 

"After the Coronation of Duke William, on December 25 that year, he went 
with him in Lent following into Normandy, being designed Governor there, when 
the King should be absent • but that Prince, hearing of some disturbances like to 
be in Endand from tlie Danes and discontented spirits there, had such an opinion 
of his abiliiies, that he brouo-hthirn back on his return, in December the same year, 
and first advanced him to the Earldoms of Arundel and Chichester (a title, as well 
as that of Sussex, given in old charters to the Earls of Arundel) and soon after to 
that of Shrewsburv : also giving to him a grant of the honor of Eye in Suffolk._ 

" His possessions, as appears bv Domesday Book, were three Lordships in Wilts, 
four in Surrey, nine in Hampshire, eight in Middlesex, eleven in Cambridgeshire, 
one in Hertfordshire, one in Gloucestershire, two in Worcestershire, eleven m 
Warwickshire, thirty in Staffordshire, seventy-seven in Sussex, besides the City of 
Chichester and Castle of Arundel ; and in Shropshire very near all the County, 
besides Shrewsburv. He had likewise large possessions in Wales ; for after the 
Normans became 'victorious, they thought the whole realm of England too little a 
recompence for so great and hazardous aii adventure ; and desiring King William 
to grant them what they could obtain from the Welsh, he readily assented thereto, 
as it would enlarge his dominions." 

Who was Urso D'Abitot ? 

He was a most distinguished Norman, the able and uncompromising prancing 
Pro-Consul of Wilham the Conqueror, the great man who lived and served under 
four Kings, in the reigns of Edward the Confessor, the last of the Saxon Kings, as 
well as the first three Norman Kings, William L, William IL, and Henry I., and 
I will now give a biographic Record of this famous Norman, and of his ancestors, 
gleaned partly by the investigations of my visit to Normandy, and partly from 
the Records of the ancient historians. 

Urso D'Abitot was one of the sous of Almericus D'Abitot, Lord of the town 
and land at St. Jean D'Abetot in Normandy, Canton of Calbosc, in the arrondisse- 
ment of Havre, situate in a remote and mountainous country, three and a half miles 
west of the ancient town of Lillebonne, famous for the meeting of William, Duke 
of Normandy, with his nobles and vassals, prior to his invasion of England in 106G. 
His brother was Robert, commonly called Le Despenser, for the office he held as 
Steward to William the Conqueror. 

The Lordship of St. Jean D'Abetot belonged to the family of Tancarville, as 
appears from the Charter for the foundation of the Abbey and College of St. Georges 
de Boscherville, near Rouen, through the benefactions of Ralph Tancarville in the 
year 1050. 

This Ralph de Tancarville was a grandson of Tancred, one of the companions 
of Eollo in the invasion and conquest of Normandy circa 912, and was chosen as 



the guardian of William, Duke of Xormaiidy, during his miaorifcj, and afterwards, 
on attaining Ids majority, he was appointed hereditary Chamberlain to the Duke, 
and this faithful guardianship and chamberlainship goes far to demonstrate the 
close friendship of William the Conqueror with Urso D'Abitot, the nephew of the 
Chamberlain, llalph de Tancarville, and of his subsequent promotion to the high 
post of High Sheriff of Worcestershire, and of his creation in 1071 as Viscount of 
Worcester, Governor of the City of Worcester, and Constable of the Castle of Wor- 

This Ralph de Tancarville was the elder brother of Almericus de Abetot, and 
their father was Gerold and their mother was Heliudis, and Gerold's father was 
Ralph, one of the twelve sons of Tancred of Hauteville, which he received from 
Rollo for his valour in the invasion of Normandy. 

Urso D'Abitot appears in the Roll of Battle Abbey, and though not mentioned 
by Wace and the other chroniclei's in the eleventh and twelfth centuries, he may 
fairly be admitted as belonging to the companions of William the Conqueror, and 
as proof of this may be cited E. de Magny in his " Nobiliare de Normandie," 
that in the Church of Dives, near Caen, has engraved on its walls the list in alpha- 
betical order, and after the names of the Nobles and relatives of W^illiam, Duk^ of 
Normandy, upwards of 450 Normans and Frenchmen, and the first name mentioned 
is Ours D'Abitot (Ours being the synonym of Urso, which means Bear). 

The name of D'Abetot continued in Normandy for two centuries, and is men- 
tioned in various Norman Charters, quoted by D'Ainsy in his " Recherchons sur 
le Domesday," till the reign of Philip Augustus, King of France, 1180 — 1223, 
when the name appears for the last ^me in the list of Norman gentry, as recorded 
by Ordericus Yitalis in his " Historise Normanorum Scriptores Antiqui." ^ 

It would be trespassing too much on your hospitality were I to attempt to give 
a record of the career of this remarkable Norman chief, Urso D'Abitot, from the 
day when he fought on that fateful day, Saturday, 13 October 1066, at Senlac 
(Hastings), side by side with William, Duke of Normandy, down to the year 1118, 
when he was laid peacefully to rest within the Cathedral walls of Worcester, 
although his boundless ambition and ceaseless activity in Worcestershire, and the 
adjacent counties, supply an ample and a thrilling story, replete with intense interest / 
of stirring events, 

** On the bead roll of Time, 
Worthy to be filed." 

There are many fine passages in the famous history, " The Norman Conquest," 
in which Professor Freeman gives an excellent coup cVml of this wonderful man, 
and that ai e worthy of being here transcribed. 

" There is no shire (Worcestershire) of whose condition during the Conqueror's 
reign we are able to put together a more vivid picture from the combined evidence 
of the Survey and of other Records. 

" We find that the two shires of Worcestershire and Gloucestershire were put 
under the care of a single Sheriff, Urse of Abetot, who stands conspicuous amongst 
the most oppressive of his class, and whose hand seems to have fallen heavily on 
clerk and laymen alike. 

" Urso of Abetot was only the chief of a wliole band of Norman spoilers, who 
seem to have fallen with special eagerness on the lands of the Church in this 
particular shire. But the Sheriff was the greatest and most daring offender of all. 
He built his Castle in the very jaws of the Monks of Worcester, so that the fosse of 
the fortress encroached on the monastic burying-ground. Church and Castle must 
thus have stood side by side overlooking the Severn. Complaint was made to the 
Archbishop, who came to the spot, examined the ground, and rebuked the King's^ 
Officer (Urso) to his face. ... 

"In the days of King Henry (1109 — 1135) the Lion of Justice, the son of 
Urso, drew on himself heavy punishment at the hands of the King, in whose days 
no man dare to hurt anotlier. 

" A servant of the King was slain by Roger's order, and the lands of St. Mary, 
along with his other possessions, passed away from the son of the first spoiler. 



*'Urso appears as a spoiler of all the three great Worcestershire Churches,^ 
besides his famous dispute with Eldred. He also appears in the records of 
Worcester, as guilty in partnership with his brother Robert, of a systematic spolia- 
tion of the land of that Church. 

*'The third great Worcestershire Monastery, that of Pershore, also sufifered 
heavily at the liands of Urso." 

In 1073 Urso Abitot was associated with the Priory of Little Malvern, which is 
referred to by Tanner in his "Xotitia" as follows : — 

''Here in the great wild forest was an hermitage, or some kind of religious 
house for seculars, before the Norman Conquest, with some endowment by the gift 
of Edward the Confessor." 

There were two important personages in Worcestershire to whom Malvern 
Priory was indebted. The first was the g'ood Saint Wulstan, the last Saxon Bishop 
of Worcester, a man of singularly upright life and deep-toned piety, the friend and 
adviser of the last Saxon and of the first Norman King. 

The second personage was Urso D'Abito, the hereditary Sheriff of the County, 
and the King's representative in Worcestershire. This nobleman, though charged 
with crime against religion generally, yet towards the sacred enclosure of Malvern 
had a kindly intention, becoming a' benefactor, and in concert with St. Wulstan 
interesting William the Conqueror on its behalf. 

Aldwin had procured letters patent from Pope Gregory VII. and W^illiam the 
Conqueror, and Urso, whose property was considerable in the • county, became a 
great benefactor to the Priory. 

Afterwards a certain Abbot of* Westminster, with the consent of Urso, placed 
there an Abbot and Monks, bestowing on them the Manors of Newland, Wortefeld, 
and Poiwyk (Powick). 

There is no doubt that Urso was much esteemed by the Conqueror, by reason 
of his great abilities and eminent services, which he particularly manifested in 1074, 
in the rebellion of Roger, Earl of Hereford, and Ralph, Earl of Norfolk, against 
AVilliam the Conqueror, as we find that Urso D'Abitot supported Wulstan, Bishop 
of Worcester, Ethelwy, Abbot of Evesham, and Walter de Lacy, with their vassals, 
who marched against the rebellious Earl of Hereford to prevent his fording the 
Severn and joining his forces to those of Ralph, Earl of East Anglia (Norfolk). 

In 1082 and 1083 Urso was present at the Great Councils held in London, 
under the presidency of William the Conqueror, and in Domesday, 1086, he appears 
as a tenant-in-chief in the counties of Worcester, Gloucester, Hereford, and Warwick, 
being also styled Urso de Wircester, from his office of Sheriff of Worcestershire, 
and he figures largely as a despoiler of the Church, especially of the Monks of 

The first notice after the death of William the Conqueror, in 1087, we have of 
Urso is when he was present in the King's Court at Salisbury on 2nd November 
1088, for in spite of the curse of Aldred, the Archbishop of York, he flourished and 
enjoyed Court favour, for we find him first among the courtiers of William Rufus 
to meet Bishop William of Durham, and to enter the Royal presence at the trial of 
the Bishop for complicity in the rebellion in March 1088 against the King, and in 
favour of his brother Robert, Duke of Normandy. ■ 

In closing this general reference to the personal history of Urso D'Abitot it 
should be stated that he married a lady named Adeliza (whose ancestry is un- 
known), by wtiom he had a son Roger and a daughter Emmeline, who was married 
to Walter de Beauchamp. The son Roger was banished^by King Henry 1. for 
having in a fit of ungovernable rage commanded one of the King's officers to be slain, 
and ail his vast possessions of which he was disinherited were granted to his 
brother-in-law Walter de Beauchamp, into whose family the hereditary Shrievalty 
also passed. - - - - 

The exact date of Urso D'Abitot's death is not positively known, but it is 
believed to have occurred in the year 1118, and the place of his burial, according 
to Leland and Willis-Browne, is given as Worcester Cathedral ; and as this fact is 



not generally known, having been studiously omitted by all ancient and modern 
historians who refer to him, it may be of interest to give chapter and verse for this 
interesting announcement. 

In the book, entitled " The laborious journey and search of Johan Leyland for 
English Antiquities presented to Henry VIIL, in the 31^^ year of his reign," is the 
following record : — 

^ " Urso de Abetot vicecomes Wigorn ; sepultus fuit ad pedes Johannis regis, & 
inde translatus in borealem partem presbyterii, juxta sepulchrum Eovesham 
Prioris Wigorn." 

The translation is as follows : — 

"Urso D'Abitot, Viscount of Worcester, was buried at the foot of King John, 
and afterwards removed to the north portion of the Presbyterv, near to the Sepulchre 
of Evesham, Prior of Worcester." 

In the book entitled " History of Mitred Parliamentary Abbeys," by Mr. Willis- 
Browne, is the following : — 

''In the middle of the Presbytery lies King John, and on the south side in a 
Chapel IS a very fair monument of Prince Arthur, Henry YII.'s eldest son (which, 
together with King John's tomb, being represented in copper plates in Sandford's 
* Genealogical History,' [ shall presently refer), and in the said Chapel lies Griffith, 
son of Rhesus ; and near King John's tomb was buried Urso de Abitot, Sheriff of 
AVorcester, before the removal of his monument into the A^orth Aisle, near the 
sepulchre of the Prior of Evesham."

A Qvantocl Family. Tfie Stawells of Colhtlstone and their descendants, the Barons Staw'ell of 
Soinerton, and the Stawelh of Devonshire and the Co^rnty Cork. Compiled and Edited by 
Colonel George Dodswoeth Stawell, late Director of Military Education in India. 
Taunton : Barnicott and Pearce, The Wessex Press. 1910. 
This is a handsomely-got-up Volume of 600 pp., printed on a stout antique paper, and comprising 
14 folding sheet pedigrees bound in at the end. and each neatly affixed in the book by an extra 
guard so as to preserve the pedigrees from being torn in unfolding. The Work commences with 
an Introduction giving the origin of the Stawell Family from the time of the Norman Conquest 
and their first settlement in Somersetshire, where the parent family were located for more than 
600 years; and from a close examination and searches in the Library of the British Museum, 
those of Bristol, Exeter. Dublin, and Cork, and the Palace at Lambeth, Trinity College, Dublin, 
the Public Record Offices of London and Dublin, and by examination of wills at Somerset 
House and elsewhere, sufficient evidence has been accumulated to prove the direct descent of the 
present Irish family from that of Devon. A pedigree of thirteen generations is proved, and 
is now registered at the Office of Arms in Dublin Castle. 

Chapter I. gives the etymology of the name, with eighteen various spellings, and several 
modern writers, including Mr. G. E. Cokayne. wrote the name as Stawel,but as a rule it is spelt 
Stawell, as in Charles IL's '-Patent of Peerage," dated January 1683, when the Barony was 
created as *' Baron Stawell of Somerton." The following Chapters give an earlier history of the 
family through Sir Adam de Coveston,.who was settled by William the Conqueror at Stawell in 
1086, and Sir Henry Stawel is given as a knight of Somersetshire in 1261. In 142-t Sir Thomas 
Stawell was testator to a deed by the Bishop of Sarum for the promotion of Divine service in the 
Cathedral of Wells, and in Taunton Parish is a monument giving the Arms and Figure of 
Sir Thomas Stawell of Coplestone, who died in 1439 ; it is ^iven in the Harieian MS. 1445, in 
the "Visitations of Somerset, 1573 and 1623." - 



We hare thus enumerated the early history of the Stawells of Cothelstone to let our readers 
know of the painstaking labours of the Compiler, and in Chapter V. we are introduced to Baron 
Stawell of Somerton in 1641 ; the Gatehouse at Coplestone is illustrated, likewise a mural 
monument to Sir John Stawell, who died in 1603, and his successor, who died in 1662, and one 
erected in Low Ham Church to Ralph, first Lord Stawell ; there is also given that to Abigail, 
Lady Stawell, erected in Hartley Wespall Church in 1692. and a portrait of John, tbe second Lord 
Stawell of Somerset ; the monument to Rev. Thomas Stawell in Luscombe Church is likewise 
given. Chapters YI. to XL give the Stawells of Hatherleigh, Devon, those of Coolmain and 
Kilbrittain, co. Cork, etc., and they are illustrated by plates of South Porch of Bovey Tracy 
Church and the gravestone of Thomas Stawell there. The portrait of Eustace Stawell of Cool- 
main and the Gateway to the Castle are given, also Kilbrittain Castle, co. Cork, likewise the 
miniature portraits of James Ludlow Stawell, 1815, George Stawell of Crobey, 1800, James 
Stawell of Old Court in 1802, Ensign Jonas Stawell in 1888, Sir William Foster Stawell, LL.D., 
in 1878, and Colonel Sampson Stawell, 12th Royal Lancers, in 1841, the monument to whom in 
Kathclaren Church is given at p. 224. Chapter XII. is on the arms and heraldry of the family, 
illustrated by 23 coats of arms, besides three plates of monuments and Church-plate. The 
Work concludes with 15 Appendices, illustrated with several views of Cothelstone and Low Ham 
Church, and a full Index and the 14 folding pedigrees. 

The whole Work is compiled in the most painstaking manner, and the family and all its con- 
nections owe a great debt of gratitude to Colonel G. D. Stawell for the voluminousness of his 
materials, and the number of searches necessary for his investigations. The Publishers and 
Printers have also done their work well, as the whole volume testifies. 

The Registers of Berry Cathedral QSt. Columb's), Parish of Temj?lewore, Londonderry, 
1642—1703. With Preface by the Rev. Richard Hayes, B.D., Canon of Derry Cathedral. 
Issued by the Parish Register Society of Dublin, 1910. 
This Register was suggested to be printed to the Cathedral authorities by Miss Fairbrother, 
and an excellent choice has been made in printing such a work, making in all about 
450 pp. The original spelling has been adopted, and the Rev. Canon Richard Hayes expresses 
the thanks of the Cathedral authorities to Mr, Herbert Wood of the Public Record Office, who 
superintended the deciphering, transcription, and printing of the whole. 

We notice that up to 1653 the marriages were solemnized before the Maj'ors of Londonderry, 
and sometimes before military men and private gentlemen, and in other cases the banns were 
published before the Congregation at Londonderry on three several Lord's days. Tnese particulars 
are noted, and where names are partly illegible or others substituted, and from November 1G61 
the witnesses at baptisms are termed "gossips" or -'goss," up to 1665, when Theophilus Davis; 
the Registrar, made his last entry, as he died 6th August 1665. 

The Work finishes with the List of Members and a very full Index, and it is a sample of 
careful transcription throughout, and Miss Fairbrother was wise in her selection of such a 
Register, and the Register Society has done good service in publishing it. 

How to Trace a Pedigree. By H, A. Craftox. London : Elliot Stock, 62 Paternoster 

Row. 1910. 

This is a small 8vo volume of 74 pp., neatly bound in cloth, giving those engaged in tracing 
pedigrees full instructions as to what works to consult in their producticm, " without crowding his 
attention with classes of documents he may need to consult," as the Editor justly says. In 
Chapter 11. he gives Somerset House as the happy hunting ground of all will searchers, and also 
pays a compliment to Dublin as being the place where all Irish wills can be found ; and in 
Chapter III, is given the names of most publications and Societies' journals which he can con- 
sult, and in London the treasures of the Record Office are at his disposal, while the valuable 



library of the College of Arms is attainable, but searches must be paid for. The will searcher 
in Ireland, Scotland, and in England is directed to the most reliable sources in each ; and in Chap- 
ter VII. is given the fees to be paid at each public office in London, \Yhile the British Museum 
reading room is always available for searches. Altogether the Work is worthy of the patronage 
of all genealogists, while its low price of 2.s-. only ought to command a great sale. We heartily 
recommend it to all our readers. 

The Virginia Magazine of Illstonj and BiograiyJnj. Vol. XIX.. Xo. 1. January 1911. 
Virginia Historical Society, Richmond, U.S.A. 
This quarterly Part commences with a continuation of the Randolph Manuscript, beginning 
with Memoranda from 16S5, the Virginia Papers from 16(i5 follow, and the Revolutionary Army 
Records from 1778. The Sussex County Wills from 1755 to 1800 may be interesting to many 
Sussex families in England, These are followed by an account of a very worthy missionary, 
John Burnyeat, of 1665 — 1673, and extracts from Sir W. Johnson's papers from 1750 relating 
to the Indian attacks chiefly. There is an account of the Kendall family from Norfolk, besides 
the usual genealogical notes of the families of Peyton Randolph, whose will is given of 1774, and 
the families of Brent, Robinson of Middlesex, Brooke of Smithfield, whose two sons, after study- 
ing at Edinburgh, migrated to the United States, and Robert, as a lad of 13, made four voyages 
to the United States, twice being made prisoner, including his being taken prisoner in the 
cavalry fight at Westhara. and then joined as a private soldier in the rebel " army, which made 
him popular, for he was elected twice Governor of Virginia, the first time in 1794, when he was 
33 years old. The account of the Chiles family of 1638 is finally given, Colonel Walter Chiles 
dying in 1653. The Book Reviews next follow, and the Part concludes with the Title of the 
volume and Proceedings for the j^ear 1910, with the List of Members, etc.

The present Part is illustrated by a steel plate of the portrait of Seth Hastings Grant, with an 
account of him by Miss Edith Grant. Four more plates give us 17 shields, illustrating an 
article on the " King " Heraldry by George Austin Morrison, junior, LL.B., which is well worth 
reading ; and then an article on William Gilbert Davies, LL.D., with a good portrait of him, 
and an account by Hopper Striker Mott. There is next a long record of the Societies of White- 
haven and Fairhaven, and the Digest of Essex Wills is carried on to April 1595, giving particulars 
of 22 wills. For genealogy we have a continuation of the Thacher-Thatcher family, by John R. 
Totten, occupying 32 pp., up to 1695, with an account of '-' Early Southampton, Long Island," 
and its inhabitants in 1640, and '•' Clues from English Archives," and with the Proceedings 
of the Record Society the Part concludes. Altogether it is an admirable one.

THE earliest recorded eponym of the family of Hewetson, one of considerable 
antiquity and long of distinction in Ireland, was John Hewetson, who first 
saw the light at the end of the fifteenth century, in the historic city of the 
" White Rose "—York. 

He had for contemporaries Christopher, Thomas, Robert, William, and Jeronimi 
Hewetson, and a namesake, John, born circa 1431, probably his g:randfather, who 
had been presented with the freedom of that city in 2 Edward lY. ; also Thomas 
Hwytson, who took his B.A. Degree at Oxford 4 July 1521 and B.C.L. 8 July 
1527 ; Richard Hewsone, Yicar of the parish of Wetwang 1552 ; John Hewetsone of 
the parish of Fowltone 1552, churchwarden, both named in the inventories of church 
plate, vestments, bells, etc., taken in this year ; and also William Hewetson, who at 
the age of twenty-three matriculated at Queen's College, Oxford, 21 June 1583. 

He lived in"^ York in the reigns of Henry YII., Henry YIII., Mary I., and 
Queen Elizabeth, having been born in the parish of " All Hallows of the Pave- 
ment " there, and died on 20 January 1567 (as set forth in a certificate of his 
burial, dated All Saints, Pavement, York, 29 January 1909). Administration of 
his estate was granted by the York Probate Court on the 27th of the month of 
decease to his relict Margaret Hewetson, the administration bond being signed 
by herself, John Lambert her brother, and Lancelot Nesfeld her brother-in-law. 

He had married Margaret, second daughter and coheir of John Lambert, Esq. 
(obiit 1569), of Calton and Skipton, county of York, Vice-Chancellor of the 
Duchy of Lancaster [a descendant of Lambert, Count of Mons and Louvain ; and 
of Gundred (died 1085) the fifth daughter of the Conqueror, married to William, 
Earl Warren and Surrey (died 1088), whose daughter Gundred as the widow of 
Roger de Bellamont was married to Sir William de Lambert], and his wife Agnes, 


* Communicated by John Hewetson^ Esq. 



danghter of Thomas Medhop, Esq., of Meclliop Hall in Crayeii, Yorkshire (great- 
grandfather of Edmond Medhop, Clerk of the Parliament of the Irish House of 
Commons 24 November 1615); she was also grandniece of Eiehard Lambert 
ancestor of the Earls of Cavan. See pp. 207—210, with Plate of Gnndred's Tomb- 
stone in Isfield Church, Lewes. 

He was born circa 1498. In the Subsidy Eoll for York and Ainsty, 9 April. 
15 Henry YIII. (1522-3), he was assessed at forty shillino's for property in Guth- 
rumgate, parish of the Holy Trinity, and paid " in goods twelve pence. 

From the city records we ascertain that he was admitted a " Freeman of the 
Citie of Yorke," 80 Henry YIII. (1537-8), as " Johannes He wson, J/^rc/^^i^/^^." 
In 1539 he was elected the Pageant-Master of the Corpus Christi procession of that 
year, and Constable of it in 1561 (the first Pageant-Master performino- that office 
in 1526). ° 

Then, in the register of -'Names of all suche as hath been admitted into the 
Worshipfnll Companye of Merchants and Mercers of the Citie of York synce 
2o ]\Iarche 1527," his name occurs as having been admitted in the year 1540 
during the Governorship of John Shadlock. " ' 

In the register of the " Guild of Corpus Christi, York," we see that " Joh 
Hewyttson et Uxor " were admitted to membership of the Guild in 1544. The first 
appointment of a Master and Keepers of this Guild was made in 1459, thouo-h its 
formation was commenced in 1408. Persons of the highest rank, both ecclesiastic 
and secular, regardless of sex, were enrolled among its members. The Guild was 
especially dedicated " to the praise aud honour of the most sacred body of Our 
Lord Jesus Christ," and its members were bound to keep a solemn procession, the 
sacrament being m a shrine, borne in the same through the City yearly, the Friday 
after Corpus Christi day. j j : 

He is named as one of the Churchwardens of " Alhallos [s/c] of the Pavement 
Yorke," in the inyentory of church goods taken 15 March 1553 (Edw. YI ) in 
connection with the suppression of the monasteries. 

In 1558 he and Christopher Mawle were plaintiffs in a Chancery Bill ao-ainst 
(his father-in-law) John Lambert, Esq., and John Lambert his son and'' heir 
apparent, concerning lands and a water-mill in Airton, Craven. 

Then, in the 3rd year of Elizabeth, 1560-1, he became one of the Camerarii 
or Chamberlains to the governing body of the City, eight of whom were 
elected by the Upper House of sixteen, who mannged the trade of the City, and 
were nominated by their predecessors, each, in consideration of the honour of his 
office, giving the City at the election the sum of twenty nobles (about twenty-five 
pounds of our money). The Chamberlains collected theVents of the City and paid 
Its expenses, which were of the most varied kind, viz., for Eoval entertainments 
gifts and hospitalities to Bishops, the King's Chamberlain, and persons of note' 
messengers to London, to the Heralds, minstrels, ambassadors, and so on Al^o 
lor a delicate bread called cUmain, for persons of superior rank, peacocks, pheasants 
salmon, pikes. Upon them also devolved the duty of swearing in or "ablincr" any- 
one who wished to exercise any trade or business. They were an influential'body in 
York. I heir accounts are still preserved in a series of parchment rolls in the 
muniment room of the Guildhall, built in 1446 on the site of the " Old Common 
Hall of the Guild of St. Christopher, founded 1395. 

From "Walks through the City of York" we gather that in medieval times 
the parish of All Saints, Pavement, was one of the most wealthy and important in 
the City, One of the earliest instances of direct taxation in England was in 13^7 
(1 Edw 111); It consisted of one-twentieth part of the computed value of the 
household goods, stock in trade, and other moveable property of every inhabitant 
ihe total number of households in All Saints, Pavement, and St. Peter the Little 
was sixty.fiye, and the total estimate of their goods one hundred and thirty-two 
pounds. The goods of the richest man in the parish were worth eight pounds 
In this year the number of taxed inhabitants in York was about 830 which had 
only increased to 1300 houses in 1740, ' 



By his wife Margaret he had, with others, an elder son— 

A. George Hewetson, born in the City of York and baptized 25 January 
1555 in the parish church of All Saints, Pavement, certified by certificate dated 
18 October 1910. His wife Christian was born circa 1558 and died in Kildare in 
1642, at the time of the great Irish rebellion, aged abont eighty-four years, being 
interred in the nave of the cathedral there, with other members of the family, but 
where her remains rested only a week, as they were dug up by the rebels, together 
with thecIepouiJIes of her grandson,Dominick Hewetson, which had received sepulture 
twenty months before, and placed in a garden outside the churchyard. Their son— 

B. Tiiomas Hewetson, Esq., of the Basken, near Swords, co. Dublin, and of 
Kildare, was Lieut.-Colonel in the Army of King Charles 1. (and one of the " '49 
Officers," that is, one of the Irish Protestant Officers of the Loyal Army of Charles I., 
disbanded (by Oliver Cromwell after the execution of the King) on the 5th June 
1649). He was born circa 1583 and died between 1G47— 1651 ; the Ulster's 
funeral entry recording his Arms, having for Crest, A coney sejant sciMe, coUcired 
argent ; and for Motto, " Ambo dexter," differing from the general family crest and 
motto, viz., the sun in splendour with "a Deo gloria mea" encircling it, whilst 
below the shield is the motto, " Non lumen etiiigio." He married Eleanor, 
daughter of . . . ., who administered the estate of her second son Captain Thomas 
Hewetson 1 July 1653, as " Thomas Hewetson, junior, son of Thomas Hewetson, 
senior," the administration which had been granted to her eldest son Colonel John 
14 Februarv 1052, havino- been revoked in her favour. They had issue, besides 
Dorothy, who became the'" wife of ... . White, Esq., and named in the will of her 
brother Colonel John, four sons, viz., 

B I. John Hewetson, Esq. of Kildare, born circa 1613, died 2 Feb. 1658, 
Colonel in the Army of K. Charles I. and one of the " '49 Officers," owner of both 
the Abbeys in Kildare, and High Sherift" for that county 1656. His will was 
dated 29 April 1656 and codicil 8 January 1658, probate being granted 
25 February 1658-9. The administration bond was for £2000. He was buried 
in the nave of Kildare Cathedral. His son Thomas of Grange Castle, county 
Kildare, Colonel in the Army, born in Kildare in 1654, died September 1705 ; 
entered Trinity College, Dublin, in 1671 at 17 years of age ; was Justice of the 
Peace for Kildare and Kilkenny 1677, High Sheriff of co. Kildare 1681, and 
Sovereign of Xaas 1686. Had a grant by patent of 29 October 1684 of the 
lands granted to his mother, which were erected into the manor of Mount Boyle 
and Forstallstown. 

B II. Thomas Hewetson, Esq., of Basken, co. Dublin, born circa 1615, a 
Captain in the Army, and slain by the enemy in the Parliament service 6 May 
1651. The Ulster's funeral entry recording his arms, impaling those of his 
wife, states that he was buried on that day and year in St. 21ir.haeVs, which 
.stood on St. Michael's Hill, the site of which is now occupied by the Synod Hall. 
[See copy tombstone inscription infra,'] On 15 February 1642 he made an 
affidavit that certain rebels about a month previously had dug up in the nave of 
Kildare Cathedral the graves of Dorainick Hewetson, his brother, who had been 
buried about twenty months, and of his grandmother who had been buried about 
a week, and had put their bodies in a garden outside the churchyard. He 
died intestate, and the administration granted to his brother Colonel John, 
14 February 1652, was revoked in favour of his mother 1 July 1653. He 
married Amy, daughter of ... . Smith, Esq. (whose arms are recorded in the 
funeral entry of her husband), by whom he left at his decease, first, either a 
son or daughter who died the same year as himself in childhood, and the event 
was recorded in the Ulster's office, viz., the Hewetson arms shewing a crescent 
on the breast of the eagle, and the announcement that "a Widow Hewetson's 
child was buried in St. Michan's over the water, Jan^ 16, 1652." Their surviving 
issue was Richard Hewetson of Dublin, merchant, named in the will of his 
uncle Colonel John Hewetson 1656^ and in the Exchequer Bill filed by his son 




20 November 1602. His will was dated 20 Jnlj 1705 and proved 29 April 1706 
by his wife Frances Hewetson, who just previous to 1700 lodged a claim with 
the Chichester House Commissioners for lease in James Street, Dublin, which 
was allowed. 

The following is excerpted from a nianuscript of " Dyneley's Tour, 1681," which 
is in the library of Sir Thomas Winnington Ingram, Bart., of which a past Presi- 
dent of the Koyal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland, John Ribton Garstin, Esq.,

The fourth son of Lieut. -Colonel Hewetson was 

B IV. George Hewetson or Hewson, Esq., born circa 1616, died circa 
1650-2. He was Captain in Lord Lambert's Regt. of Foot (garrisoned in 
Dublin 3 May 1642, the time of the great Rebellion), and was one of the "'49 
Officers." He was allowed his debenture for the arrears of his army pay, 
£331 25., by decree dated 22 March 1666 (Roll ii., mem. 69), of lands in the 
county of l^imerick ; he, however, did not enjoy his estate, having died fourteen 
years befoi'e, intestate. He had married Mary, daughter of ... . Lalor, Esq. (by 
whom was one son Francis), who was remarried to John Rigby, Esq., to whom 
and herself administration of the estate of her first husband was granted in 1653. 
They were both plaintiffs in a Chancery Bill, Rigby and ^yifev. Harman,29 April 
1653, the decree being dated 15 December 1654. Their son — 

C. Francis Hewetson or Hewson, Esq., was born in Kildare circa 1641, and settled 
himself some twenty years later at " Bally-na-glontha" (the Home in the Glen) in the 
parish of Askeaton, co. Limerick, afterwards Ballyengland, and then '"Castle Hew- 
son," its present appellation. The house and remains of the "Keep" of the old 
Castle, 40 feet by 3U by 42 feet high on the east, and 46 feet high on the west front, 
and still imposing, stand picturesquely on a steep brow of the glen, of wnich photos 
by Thomas J. Westropp, Esq., and south and east elevations on parchment by 
Mr. John Hewetson the writer, are in the Archives of the Royal Society of Anti- 
quaries of Ireland. He married in 1661 Rachel, daugliter of ... . Tyrrell, by whom 
he had, besides two daughters, two sons, George and John. (D i., below ; D ii., 

D I. George Hewson, Esq., born circa 1662, of Bally-na-glontha or Castle 
Hewson, which he held under a lease for ever from Brook Bridges, Esq., Lincoln's 
Inn, London. He also possessed the lands of Court Browne and Ballydoole. 
He made his will on the 4th November 1735, and died the 14th of the same 
month, having bequeathed to the poor of the parish of Askeaton five pounds and 
to his brother John his watch. His wife was Katherine (named in her husband's 
will), daughter of Nicholas Peacocke, Esq., of Barntic, co. Clare, by Jane his 



wife, daughter of George Rose, Esq., of Mount Pleasant, co. Limerick, and 
sister of the Right Honourable Henry Rose, M.P., Lord Chief Justice^ of the 
King's Bench, Ireland (which family was in 184:7 represented by Sir Nicholas 
Peacocke, Bart.). They had, besides a daughter Catherine, who became the 
wife of Robert Hunt, Esq., of Inchirourke, Askeaton, three sons. (D i*, D 
below ; D 1% page 247.) 

D I*. Francis Hewson, Esq., of Castle Hewson (born circa 1706), who was 
murdered in the Glen of Aherlow in the Galtees by Irish rebels when resisting 
a raid for cattle. He died sine 2)role. His brother was the eponym of the 

Kerry Hewsoxs, viz. : — 
D i''. John Hewson, Esq., of Ennismore, co. Kerry (born circa 1708), 
named in his father's will ; spoken of in his day and afterwards in that county 
as the " Rich Foreigner." He married, 23 October 1737, ]\Iargaret, then in her 
19th year [a descendant of Elizabeth (died 1316, aged 32), daughter of 
Edward I. and his first wife Eleanor, who died 1290, and her second husband 
Humphrey de Bohun], (born 1718, died at Ennismore House 28 July 1809, 
aged 91 years), seventh daughter of Maurice Fitzgerald, Knight of Kerry, by 
his wife " Elizabeth, second daughter of David Crosbie, Esq., and sister of 
Maurice, first liOrd Brandon. Ennismore, containing 1170 acres of land, was 
one of the residences of the " Old Knights " of Kerry, and Mr. Hewson upon 
marrying the Knight's seventh daughter, leased the whole estate from his father- 
in-law, and where his descendants continued to reside for many generations. 
The appellation of " Rich Foreigner," by which Mr. Hewson was known in 
Kerry, is thus explained. Down to the closing year of the eighteenth century, 
and even later, so strong was the clan feeling in this county, and so remote 
was it from the rest of the most " advanced" parts of the island, that the people 
there always spoke of the inhabitants of any other county in Munster and the 
other three provinces as " Foreigners." It was common tradition, and a saying 
up to the end of the eighteenth century, that the Hewsons of Ennismore were 
the wealthiest Foreigners in Kerry ; their foreign origin being simply their 
arrival in Kerry from Limerick Co. There is an old tradition in Kerry 
respecting the first meeting of the Knight's daughter with Mr. Hewson, which 
we now give. The roads in many parts of Munster were at that time very bad, 
and both ladies and gentlemen were obliged to save time and trouble by. 
traversing them on horseback instead of using carriages. It was on a journey 
of this kind from Ennismore or its neighbourhood that Miss Fitzgerald first 
made her future husband's acquaintance. The horse that she was riding into 
Limerick county falling lame or casting a shoe, she and her attendant groom 
were at loss how to proceed, when young Mr. Hewson happened to pass by on 
a good steed, the loan of which he asked her to accept, and walked by her side to 
the house of her friend in the county Limerick. The acquaintance led to an 
attachment and their union in 17^37, of which the issue was numerous, 
three sons and six daughters arriving at maturity (d 2% below ; D 2*^ — D 2\ 
page 247) : —

in connection with the relief of the Irish peasantry in the black '47 (the year of

unmarried in York Street, Dublin. Subsequent distinguished members of the 
College, Maurice Collis, Charles Johnson, George Anderson Greene, Alexander 
Carte, and Thomas Grace Geoghegan served their apprenticeship with him. 

5^ Maurice Hewson, Esq., Commander K.N., born 5 November 1786 ; entered 
the Navy 27 May 1796, serving under the Flag of Admiral Peyton. Afterwards 
when on a passage to Ireland in a merchant vessel he was captured'by the French 
and taken to Calais, whence, however, he was allowed to return home throuo-h 
the generous interference of the Prussian Consul (probably a Westphalian 
relative), who claimed him as a relation. His intrepid command in boat opera- 
tions^ was such as to attract the attention of Rear-Admiral Collingwood, who 
promised him early recommendation to the Admiralty. On one occasion he 
received from his Captain, Henry Yansittart, in testimony of his regard, a sword 
which had been given to himself on his first going to sea. But the great mis- 
fortune of his naval career (which interfered with his promotion)" was his 
capture by the French (the second time) and incarceration in the then renowned 
fortress of Bitche, on the north-east frontier of France, for five years ; this was 
undergone amid all the sufferings that tyranny could suggest and barbarity 
enforce, but ended by a miraculous flight from the fortress, and a month's travel

of 3,000 miles to Trieste, where he was takeu up by a boat from the " Amphion " 
oil the look-out for him. 

It is said that Commander Hewson was the very first person who established 
the practicability of a double engine to the purposes of steam navigation, as he 
was also to navigate a steam vessel on the Atlantic. He married, in 1830, 
Anna, daughter of John Hunt, Esq., Barrister-afc-Law, Dublin, and had issue.

interesting Peter Simple," by Captain Marryat. He retired from the service 
in 1848.

The St. Mary's (Askeaton) Yestry Books contain scarcely any items worth 
recording. Of the church plate the chalice is the only noticeable piece, being 
dated 1662. The next date is that of 1785, when on the 12th April, " In conT- 



pliance with an Order from the Right Reverend Lord Bishop of Limerick, a return 
was presented to him of the Vicarages of Askeaton and Tom Deely (Toomdeely) 
and of the Rectory of Lismakerry, item 5 (there were eight) being as follows : 
Furniture of ye church, a Bell, small silver chalice with y^ inscription, ' S-^ Simon 
Eaton,' a small salver, two pewter plates, a pewter tankard, communion cloth and 
two napkins, Surplice, Bible and common prayer book, and a Vestry book." [The 
following is a facsimile of one of the signatures.] 

I find that by will of George Rose, Esq. (see D st/.pra), dated 1774, the then 
Incumbent of Askeaton benefited by one half of an annuity in fee (on the lands of 
Kilnadran) of £20 Irish (£18 9s. del British), the other half going to the 
Governors of Limerick Infirmary. Also benefactions by the ladies of Castle Hewson 
are recorded : one, a bequest of £62 5s. for the support of the Askeaton parochial 
school, and the other, or rather others, summed up in the words of the polite 
thanks of the Vestry for untiring efforts in the improvements of the church." 
Later on a memorial east window of three lights with pointed arches to the memory 
of William Hewson (see supra E. i. b) was erected afier a design numbered 2, 
" excepting" that the cross was to be left out, and the sheep were to appear as in design 
numbered 1. Then again a younger member of the family replaced the " old " bell 
mentioned above, cas^t in 1747, V putting a new one three times largerin the 
battlement of the west side of the rained old octagonal tower of an ancient church, 
the Right Reverend the Lord Bishop of Limerick conducting its ''consecration 
and dedication." One peculiar entry may be quoted, viz., the permission of the 
churchwardens for a stable, 24 feet front by 20 feet deep, to be erected in the 
churchyard to shelter the Castle Hewson horses during the riders' attendance on 
Divine Service, but this permission was withdrawn two months afterwards. Lastly, 
it had been proposed by Captain John Lysaght Hewson, and agreed to by the rest 
of the parishioners, lhat application be made by memorial to the Bishop of Limerick 
for building a steeple to the church of Askeaton. Among other signatures was that 
of which you here see the facsimile — 

Both Robert Hewson and his eldest son Captain John Lysaght Hewson were 
churchwardens, as also Henry Rose and James Hewson. Besides the memorial east 
window of the church there are in the nave two mural tablets to members of the 
Hewson family, whilst beneath the nave rest " les depouilles " of venerable 
ancestors, now no longer used, the present God's Acre " lying bright and hushed 
upon a gentle rise on the Castle Hewson estate.

remainder to William for life, remainder to the firsD son of William, remainder to

William, his eldest son ; George dies 4 and 5 Philip and Mary ; Anne dies, George dies 
without issue; William hath issue Henry and George; George hath issue William ; 
William hath issue Pembroke; William enters, Henry enters; Henry and George are 
attainted 1 Jac. In 3 Jac. an Act is made reciting the attainder and confirms it ; 
and then follows a proviso that the Manor of Cooling shall be and remain and be 
held and enjoyed to Duke Brook and the heirs male of his body, remainder to 
Charles, remainder to William Brook and the heirs male of his body, remainder to 
such estates tail as are mentioned in the will of George the devisor. Sir William

Principal authorities : Testaments in the General Register House, Edinburgh ; 
the various printed volumes of Services of Heirs in Scothind ; and Mr. H. B. 
M'Call's " Some Old Families " (1 890), which has a short notice with a sketch 
pedigree of this family (pp. 278-9) and some account of the Minister of Dryfesdale 
(p. 30), and of Micliael Herrics of Spottes (p. 288). 

T. WiLLiAii flERRiES was admitted Guild brother of Edinburgh 7 May 1577 
(Edin. Guild Reg.). His testament (dated at his dwelling in Edinburgh 23 Dec. 
1597), inventory, etc., as of William Hereis, merchant burgess of Edinburgh, who 
died 1 January 1597-8, given up by Katherine " Bankis," his relict, for herself and 
on behalf of Robert Herries his only lawful son, was confirmed at Edinburgh 
24 January 1598-9. His parentage has not been discovered. The inventory 
mentions among his debtors, "David Hereis in Drumfreis," "Katreue Hereis," 
"George Hereis of Daurachtie " (probably George Herries of Maidenpaup and 
Tei'raughfie, anciently spelled Tarrauchtie, Tarachtie, etc.), "Richard Hereis, fiar 
of Mabie," "John Hereis in Bruchlie," and "Robert Hereis of Mabie " (of whose 
family the writer hopes to give a pedigree in a future number). The testament 
appoints Robert Herries and NicoU Edgar, merchant burgesses of Edinburgh, to be 
overseers to the son Robert, and council givers to the relict Katherine Bankes ; the 
first was perhaps a brother of George Herries of Terraughtie and Maidenpaup 
above named (for this question and the Maidenpaup pedigree see " Miscellanea 
Genealogica et Heraldica," Fourth Series, Vol. IV., p. 220) ; the second was 
possibly brother-in-law of Katherine Bankes, for the testament, etc., of Isobel 
Bankes, who died in October 1602, given up by her husband Xicoll Edgar, was 
confirmed at Edinburgh 25 March 1603. 

Katherine Bankes and a second husband James Weill, merchant (to whom she 
was married at Edinburgh 28 June 1598, see Edin. Marr. Reg., Scottish Record 
Soc), were living in February 1628. (Morison's " Decisions of Court of Session," 
6015.) In January 1602 Hew Crawfurde, in an appeal to the Privy Council, 
stated that the plague had come within his dwelling, the " Quhytehouse " beside 
Edinburgh, belonging to " Katherene Bankis, relict of William Hereis, and James 
Weill, now her spouse, in life rent, and to Robert Hereis, her son in fee." Five of 
his bairns had died and the house had been burnt " be accident in the clengeing 
thairof." The owners had sued him for its restoration, but he claimed to be 
"assoilzed simpliciter" from this action, which the Council remitted to the Judge 
Ordinary. (P.O. Reg., vi., 521.) 

The son of William Herries and Katherine Bankes — 

II. Robert Herries, M.A., was born about 1582. He graduated at Edin- 
burgh University 22 February 1602 ("Edin. Graduates," Bannatyne Club, 19). A 
preacher in 1615, he was presented to the Crown living of Dryfesdale in Dumfries- 
shire 24 December 1616. According to Calderwood (History, Wodrow Soc, vii., 
256) " Robert Hseresse " was one of the ministers who signed at Edinburgh, 
27 June 1617, a protest against King James's attempts on the liberties of the 
Kirk. He had a commission with others, 8 December 1635 (renewed 8 December 
1636), from the Privy Council to collect money for building a bridge where the 
road from Annandale towards London crossed the Water of Milk by ford at which 
lives had been lost. (P.C. Reg., 2nd Ser., vi., 149, 349.) On 8 January 1642 as 
" Magister Robertus Herreis, minister verbi Dei apud ecclesiam de Drysdaill," he 

* Communicated by David C. Herries. Esq., 53 "Warwick Square, London, S.W., who 
would be ^flad of any additions or corrections to the pedigree. 


was served heir oeneral of Willielmi Herreis, mercatoris bnrsfensis de Edinbuvgli, 
patri^s " His tombstone in Dryfesdale old Kirkyard about a mile north of Lockerbie 
has carved on it two shields, a'sknll and cross-bones, and an inscription in raised 
letters. The shields are much worn ; one still has in its upper part two charges, 
pos^ibiy hedo-ehofrs ; tlie other bears a saltire with hedgehogs in the flanks and foot 
like some ofl:he seals of the Maxwells, Lords Herries, illustrated in Sir A\. Eraser's 
" Book of Carlayerock." The inscription (in fair preservation when the present 
writer copied it in 1904) runs thus : " Hirlys | Mr. | Robert Herris | Minister 


Year of god | 1662 his eag | was 80 years | lustra ultra | octo hic 

BUS I \LMUS ERAT," The date o-iven for his death shews that Dr. Hew Scott was 
wrong in his memoir of him Fasti," i., pt. ii., 647) in supposing that he contmued 
at Dryfesdale after the re-establishment of Episcopacy by an Act of 27 May 1662. 

"Janet Mackison, relict of the deceist Mr. Robert Herries, Last minister att 
Drysdaill" (they were married at South Leith 10 September 1618, according to 
Scot's " Fasti "), came, 4 November 1670, to the lands and house of Halldykes, and 
in conformity with a disposition made by her on the same day in favour of " Robert 
Herries her LawfuU sone" put him in possession of her goods there, her horses, 
sheep, etc., etc. (" Instrument off possessione in favours of Robert Herries, 1670," 
pe7?es Edward Herries, C.B., of St. Julians, Sevenoaks). Mr. Robert Herries and 
Janec ^^lackison had issue : — 

1. William, of whom later (No. III.). 

2. Robert, founder of the family of Herries of Halldykes, Dumfriesshire, 

of which the writer hopes to give a pedigree in a future number. 

3. Maro-aret, wife of William Herries of Coryton, who, with her consent, 
' signed at Dryfesdale in November 1658 a " discharge," in favour of 

"Mr. Robert hereis and Jeanet Mackison his spouse," for 2000 
merks Scots due to him from the said "Mr. Robert hereis in nam 
off Tocher with Margaret hereis his Doughter." (" Discharge 
William hereis of Corytoun to Mr. Robert hereis, 1658," pe7ies 
Edward Herries, C.B., of St. Julians.) 

III. William Herries of Hartwood or Harthat, an estate acquired according 
to Mr. M'Call by his father from Carruthers of Holmains. He is always styled 
" Maf^ister" or " Mr.," titles then reserved in Scotland for Masters of Arts, and is 
probably therefore the "Gulielraus Herisius " who graduated at Edinburgh 8 July 
1644 (" Edin. Graduates," Bannatyne Club, 62), and the "Mr. William Herreis of 
Hairhat " [sic\ who served on the Dumfriesshire War Committee m 1648. (" Acta 
Pari Scot.," vi., 295 : or vi., pt. ii., 32, later ed.) The testament dative, inven- 
tory, etc., of "Master William Herreis in Harcwood, who died m September 16o8, 
given up by Marion McGill, relict, on behalf of Elizabeth, Jannett, Katherine, Anna, 
and Issobell Herreiss, bairns lawful to defunct," was confirmed at Dumfries 

3 May 1659. „ . , -rr , . „ i

heir o-eneral of " Mao-istri Francisci McGill, ministri verbi Dei apud ecclesiam de

ffiven'from a MS. pedigree of 1789 (penes Edward Herries, C.B., of 
St. Julians), with such confirmatory evidence as has been obtained.

Spottes to William Porter Muirhead-Herries (who died 14 March 
1823) on 10 June 1823 and assumed the name of Heriies (see 
presently in the account of Michael Herries, No. YL). He died 
12 February 1872, leaving issue.' (See Herries of Spottes, Burke's

3. Janet, "married to Colonel Graham, who went abroad with King 

James at the revolution and whose only daughter was married to 
Michael...., son of Sir John Malcolm of Lochore." Herries 
Graham was served heir to her mother "Janet Herries, Wife of Col. 
William Grahame of Balwhapell," more correctly Boquhapple, Perth- 
shire, 24 December 1709. (In the Decennial Indices to Services, 
1710 — 19, under Grahame, she is treated as a son, but this is cor- 
rected in the supplement to the same part, 1710 — 19, under Herries.) 
She was the first wife of the i\Iichael IVIalcohu above named, and 
died in February 1733. (Burke's " Peerage," 1911, title Malcolm, 
Bart.) For Colonel Graham, who fought for King James at Killie- 
crankie under his cousin Lord Dundee, his pedigree, second mar- 
riage, etc., see the " Scots Peerage," ed. Sir J. V>. Paul, title 
Graham, Earl of Menteith, vi., 149 — 151. 

4. Katherine, "first married to ... , Herries of Mabie, and secondly to 

.... Maxwell of Carse, but had ho issue by either." Mr. i\I'Kerlie 
("Lands in Galloway," v., 226-7 ; iii., 332) says that " Catherine 
Herries, daughter of William Herries, styled of Harthat," had sasine 
in life rent of Mabie (no date is given), and thac " Katherine 
Herries, Lady Mabie," had sasine of the mylne of Barcloj 19 Sep. 

5. Anna, ''married Archibald Stuart, brother to Stuart of Shambilly, by 

whom she had a daughter, married to ... . Malcolm, father of 
Archibald Malcolm, writer in Dumfries, and other children." No 
confirmatory evidence in support of these statements has been found. 
There are still Stewarts of Shambelly in the parish of Newabbey and 
Stewartry of Kirkcudbright. 

6. Isobel " was married to William Graham of Mossknow and was mother 

of Fergus Graham and grandmother of John Graham, now 
(i.e. 1789) of Mossknow." An Irving pedigree by Mr. J. R. Lyell, 

* Mr. M'Call's list of the issue of the marriage of Elizabeth Herries and John Dalrymple 
dLffers from that given above from the MS. pedigree in omitting the sons James and Francis 
and the daughters Marion and Anne, and in adding a daughter Nicholas, wife of John 



in the "Scottish Antiquary" (viii., 16), states that William 
Graham, son of the Rev. William Graham by Margaret, daughter and 
heir of David Irving of Mossknow, Dumfriesshire, younger son of 
Christopher Irving of Bonshaw, married in 1682 Isobel Herries, 
daughter to William Herries, :\I.A., of Hurthat (she died 20[h March 
1737). They had issue : (1) David, who appears to have died sine 
prole; (2) Fergus Graham of :\Iossknow ; (3) Janet ; and (4) Aun."^ 
The pedigree of Graham of Mossknow in Burke's Landed Gentry " 
(1906) is only traced back to the late owner's (General Graham) 
• great-grandfather John, probably the John " now of Mossknow " 

above named. 

lY. Fkancis Herries of Hartwood, also, according to Mr. M'Call, of the ten 
pound land of Ecclefechan. At various dates in 1671 Sir Robert " Dalzeell of 
Glenae," " Francis Herreis," variously styled in these transactions as of "Ilarquhat," 
" G^arthat," and " Harthwood," and others, on the one part, and John Johnstone of 
*' Elshiesheills," and others, on the other part, had to find surety that they would 
noL harm or injure each other. (P.O. Reg., 3rd Ser., iii., 695, 699, 701.) His son— 

Y. William Herries was served (1), 16 March 1699, as "filius Francisci 
Herries de Hartwood," heir of provision general of " Magistri Willielmi Herries 
filii natu maximi :Magistri Roberti Herries ministri verbi Dei apud Drysdale, avi"; 
(2) 30 August 1708, as ''of Harthat," heir special "of his Great-Grandfather 

Francis McGill, minister of Kirkmichael, who died . . February 1664, in 3000 

Merks over Crunzeerdtoun, etc., Dumfriesshire "; (3) 16 October 1710, as "son of 
Francis Herreis of Harthwood," heir general of " his Grandfather William Herreis 
of Harthwood." The "Scots Magazine" (xiii., 407) has this obituary notice of 
22 August 1751 : "At Leith in the 68th year of his age, William Herries of 
Greskin, merchant in that town." This merchant, according to Mr. M'Call, was 
identical with the William Herries of the above-mentioned services of 1699— 
1710,* who, he says, sold Ecclefechan to George Carruthers of Holmams 24 Nov. 
1710, when "son and heir apparent of Francis," and by a first wife had a son— 

1. Michael, of whom later (No. YL). 

And by a second wife, Janet Mason, liad a daughter— 

2. Jane. She was served heir of provision as " Jane Herries " to " her 

Father William Herries, merchant in Leith," 15 July 1767, and 
was married (as his second wife) 29 April 1767 to Alexander 
Stewart (or Stuart), :\[inister of St. Cuthbert's, or West Church, 
Edinburgh, who died in his 45th year, 5 April 1775. (Scott's 
"Fasti," i., pt. i., 122.) She died at Leith 15 October 1792. 
("Scots Magazine," liv., 519.) The testament dative, inventory, 
etc., of " Mrs. Jane Herries or Stewart, relict of the Rev. Mr. 
Alexander Stewart, Minister of West Church," was confirmed at 
Edinburgh 23 May 1793, the executor dative being " ^Lchael 
Herries of Spotts, esquire, her brother," who was principal legatee 
under a disposition made by her 4 October and registered in the 
Commissarv Court Books of Edinburgh 19 October 1792. In this 
deed (which, as well as the Commissary Court Book copy, is in the 
General Register House, Edinburgh), she mentions Mrs. Beatrix 
Mason, widow of David Straclian of W'hitehouse, and other persons 
of the name of Strachan, perhaps relations of her mother Janet 
Mason. She leaves her bed and table linen to Isabella and Mar- 
garet Stewart, her husband's daughters (probably by his first wife 
as she does not call them her own children). 

* The MS. pedigree of 1789 mentioned in the account of Elizabeth, eldest dau. of William 
Herries of Hartwood (^""0. HI.), is mainly concerned with the Halldykes branch of this family 
and only traces the elder or Hartwood line as far as Francis Herries (Xo. IV.) and his sisters. 

T 2 



YI. Michael Herries of Greskin and Spottes, a merchant in London and 
Glasgow, according to Mr. ]\I'Cal], who says that he acquired Spottes about 1780, 
married Anne Blackburn (" Mrs. Anne Herries, spouse of Micliael Herries, Esq., 
of Spottes," died 2 December 1792 "at Spottes Hall in her 60th year," according 
to the "Scots Magazine," liv., 622), and that in a will dated 11 April 1780. he 
names as executors his son William Herries of Kingsland Place (who died before 
him "at Spottes Hall in the parish of Urr," 19 :March 1795, ihid., Ivii., 206) : Sir 
Robert Herries of London ; Robert Herries of Halldykes and St. James's Street, 
Westminster, and his sou Robert; and Charles and" William Herries of London, 
merchants. The last five were of the Halldykes branch of this family (refer to 
Robert, second son of Robert Herries, Minister of Dryfesdale, No. IL), and the 
above named Sir Robert Herries eventually became possessed of the estate of 
Greskiu by virtue of deeds of settlement made by Michael Herries, 15 August 1795 
and 16 October 1798, both registered in the "Books of Session 19 ^March 1800. 
JMichael Herries died "at Spottes-hall " 31 January 1800. (" Scots ]\ragazine," 
Ixii., 72.) He had settled his estate of Spottes first on AVilliam Porter Muirhead, 
son of Dr. Muirhead, Minister of Urr, apparently no relation, who had sasine of it 
20 June 1800 (M'Kerlie's " Lands in Galloway," v., 304 ; Scott's "Fasti," i., pt. ii., 
680), and assumed the name of Herries. He 'died in 1823, and was succeeded at 
Spottes by virtue of Michael Heri ies's settlement by William Young as has been 
related already (refer to Elizabeth, eldest daughter of William Herries of Hart- 
wood, No. IIL).

(See 32, p. 283.) (See 33, pp. 283-4.) 

The above pedigree is recorded in Vincent MS. 141,111, which professes to be 
a copy of the Visitation of Somerset in 1573. Nothing more is known of (1) and 
(2). The will of Will'us Smythes de Wyke (27) was proved in 1585, and his sons 
Joh'es and Georgius are mentioned therein (see p. 281). 

* In the early (Somersetshire) portion o£ the pedigree the spelling Smythes has been adopted, 
except in quotations, this being apparently the form of the name usually preferred by members 
of the family, but in the documents quoted it will be seen that the spelling varied greatly, the 
forms Smithes, Smithies, Smythes. Smythies, Smethes, and Smeethes all being used. The last 
form Smeethes probably indicates naost nearly the way in which the name was pronounced. 



(^) The will of Robert Smythes of Bristol, dated 30 July 1585 contains the 
following . - 1 ^rive and bequeath unto Elizabeth my wife the halfe of all raye 
honsehofd stufft, my lesser silver salte double cruilt .... my percel bowle

The will continues : " I give unto my Aunte Margaret Bolton twentye five shillinges

named Joane, and that he had a son Jessey, is shewn by his own will quoted above.

children are referred to in Harl. MS. lUl, fo. 31, collated wich 144o fo. 49^and 
155^^^^^^ 161. [See (7) and (15 to 21), pp. 279-80.] That George Smythes was tlie

in 1584, since his brother William made him overseer of his will m that year. 

(5) Edward Smythes, William, George, and Robert Smythes are all referred to 
in the will of Thomas Smythes of Ubleight dated 1567 (12, ^^f 

brothers. Their relationship to each other and to Johannes J^niythe. then t^thej 
thus established. A bequest in the same will " to my brother Edward s dauohte 
shews that Edward was married and had a child, but neither the name of the wife 
nor of the daughter is given. 

(6) Jessey Smythes is referred to in the will of his father Robert Smythes (3) 
quoted above, also in the will of his uncle Thomas Smythes (22) as "my brother 
Robert's child." 

(7) John Smythes of Wrington is shewn by the Harl. M| lUl, 31 etc 
(see 4 above), to have been the son of George Smythes of Wrington ; to have 
married Joane, daughter of ... . Dorrington, and to have ^/^n 'John^ 

in 1623 and six daughters. There is a short pedigree a the Herald. College 
Embodying similar intbrmation, and in addition shewing that John ^"JJ^hes of 
Wrin<^ton bore the same arms and crest as his cousin George femy the. the Alder- 
LTfsee 31, p. 282), but with a crescent for second branch. George bmythes the 
Tlderman r;tLs to^ him in his will, dated 1614, as his cozen John Smythes of 
Wrington, and Robert Smythes of Bristol (3) also refers to him in his will, dated 
1584 as " John Smithes the sonne of George Smithes mye brother. 

The will of John Smythes, dated 6 June 1626, is a valuable document. It 
confirms the information given in Harl. MSS. regarding his children, and supple- 



ments it by giving the Christian name of the daughter married to James Bisse as 
Mary, the Christian name of the daughter married to Nicholas Harvey as Sarah, 
the Christian name of his son John's wife as Sara, the Christian name of the hus- 
band of his daughter Judith as John, and further, by recording the marriage of his 
daughter Joaae (shewn as unmarried in Harl. M-SS.) to Richard Chichester. In it 
the testator wills " to be buried in the church of Wrington ueere unto the place 
where my sonne John Smithes was lately buried," and makes bequests to the 
poore of Wrington ; Johane my wife ; my cosen William Strode ; my son-in-law^ John 
Cope ; Elizabeth Godwyn my daughter,' the wife of Robert Godwyn ; my daughter 
Sara Harvie, wife of Nicholas Harvie ; my daughters Jane Barnard, wife of Edward 
Barnard, gent. ; :\rary Bisse, wife of James Bisse, gent. ; Johane Chichester, wife 
of Richard Chichester, gent. ; and Judith Tayerner, wife of John Taverner, gent. ; 
Susan Passion my kinswoman ; my brother-in-law John Bickombe, gent''. ; my 
daughter-in-law Mary Cope; my daughter-in-law Sara Smithes, a widowe ; my 
grandchild Johane Strode, etc. 

Proved by Joane Smythes the widow at London on 2 September 1626. 
(109, Hele.) 

The will of Joane Smythes of Wrington, widow of the above, is dated 2 May 
1638. In it, after expressing a wish to be buried in the church of Wrington " before 
my seat," she makes bequests " unto my daughter Eh'zabeth Godwin, my daughter 
Mary Cope, my daughter Jane Barnard, my daughter Sarah Diar, my daughter 
Joane Chichester, my daughter Judith Tavernor ; my grandchildren Edward God- 
win, Sarah Harvey, Elizabetii Godwin, Anna Godwin, Joane Godwin, and Thomas 
Godwin ; two daughters Katherine and Joane; ray daughter Mary Bysse ; .... 
my sonn-in-lawe Edward Barnard and my grandson William Strode to be overseers. 

Witnessed by Edw. Barnard and George Foorde, and proved 2 July 1639 in 
P.C.O. by Mary Bisse, daugliter and executrix named. 

N.B. — John Smythes refers to John Cope as his son-in-law and Mary Cope as 
his daughter-in-law ; Joane Smythes refers to Mary Cope as her daughter. From 
this it seems likely that Mary Cope was a daughter of Joane Smythes by a previous 
marriage. A daughter, Sarah Diar, is also mentioned by Joane Smythes, but not 
by her husband under that name ; she is, however, probably identical with Sarah 
Harvie, who may have become a widow and remarried in tlie interval between the 
wills. A daughter Katherine left £10 by Joane Smythes is not mentioned by 
John Smythes, and her name has not been included in the pedigree. The Parish 
Registers of Wrington, however, record that " Katherine d. of John Smythes " was 
baptized there 16 June 1602. A granddaughter Johane Strode is mentioned by 
John Smythes and a grandson William Strode by Joane Smythes. These may have 
been cnildren of Katherine Smythes above mentioned, but her marriage is not 
recorded at Wriugton. 

(8) Thomas Smythes. The Parish Registers at Wrington record that " Tho- 
mas s. of George Smithes " was baptized 26 May 1555, and that on 13 February 1570 
*' Thomas Smithies" was buried. 

(9) Timothy Smythes. The Parish Registers at Wrington record the baptism 
of "Tymothye s. of George Smythe(s)" on 14 December^l565, and the burial of 

Timothy Smythes " 1 October 1566. 

(10) George Smythes. The Parish Registers at Wrington record the baptism 
of "George s. of George Smithes" on 11 November 1569,* and the burial of 
"George Smythe(s) " on 23 August 1570. 

(11) William Smythes. The Parish Registers at Wrington record the baptism 

* This date is given in the pedigree as 1559 instead of 1569. 



of "\Yilliam s. of George Smithes" on 7 October 1576. Between this date and 
1626 there is no record of a William Smythcs having been buried at Wrington. 
He is not referred to in the will of his brother Gideon (1609) or the will of his 
brother John ( 1626), and no farther information regarding hira has vet been 
obtained. He may have gone to London or the eastern counties, and, marrying at 
about the age of twenty-three, become the father of William Smythies of Gosfields. 
Having regard to all the ascertained facts this seems most probable. 

(12) Gideon Smythes. The Parish Registers at Wrington record the baptism 
of "Gedion s. of George Smithe(s) " on 5 June 1579, and the burial of "Gideon 
Smithies " on 30 September 1609. His will, dated 12 September and proved P.C.C., 
17 November 1609 (99, Dorset), shews that his wife's Christian name was Elizabeth, 
and that he had a son living named George (see 14, below). 

(13) Edward Smythes. The Parish Registers at Wrington record that " Ed- 
ward s. of George Smithes " was baptized 5 June 1583. Between this date and 
1626 there is no record of an Edward Smythes being buried at AVrington. He is 
not referred to in the will of his brother Gideon (1609) or the will of his brother 
John (1626), and nothing more is known regarding him. 

(14) George Smythes is mentioned in the will of his father Gideon Smythes 
(1609), who died at the age of thirty. Nothing more is known regarding him. 

(15) Jane Smythes, one of the six daughters of John Smythes of Wrington, is 
mentioned in Harl. MS. 1141, fo. 31, etc. (see 4 and 7, above). She was married 
to Edward Barnard at Wrington on 28 December 1606 (Par. Reg. Wrington), and 
both she and her husband are mentioned in her father's will (1626). 

(16) Elizabeth Smythes, one of the six daughters of John Smythes of Wrington, 
is mentioned in Harl. MS. 1141, fo. 31, etc. (see 4 and 7, above). The Parish 
Registers record that " Elizabeth d. of John Smithes " was baptized at Wrington 
on 22 June 1595. Her father's will shews that at the time of his death (1626) 
she was married to Robert Godwyn (or Goodwyn), and her mother's will (1638) 
gives the names of her children Edward, Elizabeth, Anna, Joane, and Thomas. 
The name of Robert Goodwyn is of interest owing to the fact that William Smythies 
of Witnesham (Pedigree ^, 10) by his will, dated 1714, made his "dear friend 

Robert Goodwin" executor of his will. William Smythies was born in 1635, 
and it seems likely that the Robert Goodwyn he mentions may have been a son of 
Kobert Goodwyn and Elizabeth Smythes, born in or after 1638. 

(17) John Smythes, set. 25 in 1623, is shewn by Harl. MS. 1141, fo. 31, etc. 
(see 4 and 7, above) to have been the son of John Smythes of Wrington, and to 
have married a daughter of . . . . Fowen of Bristol. The Parish Registers of Wring- 
ton record that he was buried there on 4 'Mnj 1626. His father i-efers to him in his 
will, dated 6 June 1626, as "lately buried," and also mentions his widow Sara. 
It is evident from this will that John Smythes, jun., and Sara Fowen had no 

Ill "Alumni Ox.," iv., John Smythes is recorded as having matriculated at 
Brasenose College, Oxford, 26 May 1609, and become a Student at the Middle 
Temple 1611. 

(18) Mary Smythes, one of the six daughters of John Smythes of Wrington, 
is referred to as "a da." married to James Bisse in Harl. MS. 1141, fo. 31, etc. (see 
4 and 7, above). The Parish Registers record that " Mary d. of John Smithes " 
was baptized at Wrington 21 October 1599. Her father's will shews that her 
name was Mary, and that at the time of his death (1626) she was married to James 
Bisse. She proved her mother's will, dated 1638, on 2 February 1639. 






(19) Sarah Smythes, one of the six daughters of John Sinythes of Wrinn-ton is 
referred to as ''a da." married to Xicho. Harvey in Harl. MS. lUl, fo. 31,e"tc. (see 
4 Hud 7, above), ihe Parish Registers record that " Sarah d. of Joha Smithes " 
was baptized at Wrington 12 February 1597-8. Her father's will shews that her 
name was Sarah, and that at the time of his death (1626) she was married to Nicho- 
las Harvey. Her mothei;'s will (1638) refers to her and to her daughter Sarah. 

^ (20) Judith Smythes, one of the six daughters of John Smythes of Wnntrton 
IS mentioned m Harl. MS. lUl, fo. 31 (see 4 and 7, above). The Parish 
Registers record that "Judith d. of John Smeethes" was baptized at Wrin-ton 
24 June 1608 and that she was married to John Taveruor at Wrington on 
1 January 1622. (From this it would appear that she was under 14 when married.) 
Hoth she and her husband are mentioned in the will of her father (1626). 

^ (21) Joane Smythes, one of the six daughters of John Smvthes of Wrincrton 
is mentioned as unmarried in Harl. MS. 1141, fo. 31, etc. (see 4 and 7, above).' 
Ihe 1 arish Registers record that " Johanna d. of John Smythes" was baptized at 
Wring on 22 September 1605, and that she was married to Richard Chichester at 
VYrington on 22 May 1625. Both she and her husband are mentioned in the will 
or ner father (1626).*

Proved by George Smithes and William Smethes, sons, in P.C.C., 26 February 
1585-6. (8, Windsor.) 

(28) William Smythes was the third son of William Smythes of Wyke Court, 
and with his elder brother George proved his father's will (see 27, above). The 
two brothers were joiut residuary legatees, and a dispute may have arisen between 
them as to the division of the property, or William may have died ; but however 
that may be, no mention is made by George in his will, dated 1614, of either of his 
brothers John or William or of any children of theirs. Either John or William 
may have been the father of William Smythies of Gosfields. 

(29) .... Smythes, a daughter of William Smythes of Wyke Court, married 
to Thomas Parraynter, whom William Smythes refers to in his will as his son (see 
27, above). 

* Probably the same person as John Smythes of Wrington, whose father George Smythes of 
Wrington was still alive in 1581. 
t See note to (31), below. 
X Son-in-law. 



(30) John Smythes of CorapLoii, son of William Smythes of Wyke Court (see 
27 and 28, above). The Parish Registers of Wrington record tlie baptism of a 
John Smithes 22 June 154J:, who may h;ive been John Smythes of Compton. 

(31) George Smythes (so spelt in the signature to his will) was born circa 1563.* 
He was admitted to Gray's Inn 1-4 March 1608-9 (Adm. Reg. Gray's Inn). A 
member of the Goldsmiths' Company, he was Prime Warden in i6 10-11, and Alder- 
man of Bridge from 30 April 1611 till his death in 1615. In 1611 he was elected 
Sherift'of London, and there is a note in the records of the Goldsmiths' Company 
that a gi-atuity of £100 was given to him on his election " towards the tryming of 
his house and other charges in the time of his Shrievalty." Ki^'dxm-^ {Argent, a 
chevron azure between three oak-leaves vert, each charged with an acorn or) were 
exemplified and a crest granted to him (A clenii-arm azure and ha7id proper, holding 
a branch of oak-leaves with acorns or, set in a wreath of his colours) on 9 March 
1602. This document, signed by William Dethick, Garter Principal King of Arms, 
and William Camden, Clarencieux King of Arms,t is now, and ha? been for 
generations,, in possession of the Essex flimily of Smythies, descended from William 
Smythies of Gosfields (Vicar of Belchamp Walter, co. Essex, in 1623). In March 
1869, being then in possession of Francis Smythies, Esq., of Headgate House, 
Colchester, it was published in " Miscellanea Genealogica et Heraldica " (Series I., 
Part XI., p. 96) ; it is now the property of his son. In the grant George Smythes 
is described as "of ye Court of Wike in the Countie of Somerset, gent., descended 
of that name in the Conn tie of Lancaster." From this it would appear that by 
1602 he was in full possession of Wike Court, which by his father's will was, with 
all other property, except certain legacies and annuities, left jointly to George and 
his brother William, the inference being that William had either died or sold his 
rights to his brother. As regards his descent in the County of Lancaster, we find 
this referred to also in the Vincent MS. quoted above, and since there are frequent 
mentions of the name in early records of the northern counties of Northumberland, 
York, and Lancaster, there seems no justification for concluding that the descent 
was merely conjectural. J 

On 12 April 1588 a licence (Mar. Lie. Chester and London) was granted for 
the marriage of George Smythes, described as " of S* Mathew, Friday Street, Gold- 
smith," and " Sara Woolhouse, spinster, of S*^ Magnus, London, da. of Anthony 
Woolhouse, haberdasher, deceased, gen.," also of St. Magnus, London, and of Chap- 
well, CO. Derby. 

The Funeral Certificate of George Smithes (College of Arms, Book I., 16, 

* He was recorded on his moQuraent in St. Mary's Steyning as aged 52 when he died, 11 July 
1615, but in his father's will, dated 3 September 1581-5, he is spoken of as under age. If he was 
52 when he died it is obvious thac he must have been 21 before 11 July 1581. It'may be that 
he was not 52, but in his 52nd year at the time of his death, or possibly his father's will was 
drafted some little time before it was signed and dated.

p. 372^) shews that he died in July 1G15, and was buried at St. Mary's Steyninfr 
on 10 August following ; that he had four sons, Arthur (the eldest), William, and 
two named George, who died young, also a dnughter Hester, who married Christo- 
pher Eyre, Esq., of Wilts, Citizen and Merchant of London, and a daughter Eliza- 
beth, who married Edward Semster (Anne, Frances, and Goodliffe are not mentioned). 
His wife is described as Sara, daughter of Anthone Wollis [sic'] of the county of 
Derby, gent., late Citizen and Haberdasher of London. His son William is recorded 
as chief mourner at the funeral, and it is stated that he left a -will. 

George Smythes' will, dated 25 February 1614, is an interesting document of 
great length. By it he leaves, with certain provisos regarding a life interest to his 
wife, etc., the manors of Ladysbury and Obden, co. Worcester, to his son Arthur, 
and tlie manor of Templeton in Berkshire to his son William. Xo mention is made 
oftheWike Court estate, which iiad presumably been sold. To the Goldsmiths' 
Company he bequeaths " one guilt Standynge Cupp of the value of thirty and five 
pounds with my name and armes to be set thereupon " (this is no longer in 
possession of the Company and was no doubt melted down with other plate during 
the Civil War), also a legacy of forty-six pounds, and in addition he directs that a 
banquet shall be given at Goldsmiths' Hall on the day of his funeral. Tliis 
banquet was duly held, and the following memorandum in the books of the Gold- 
smiths' Com])any records the event: " 12 Jas.I. 1614.* On Tuesday the 11^^ July 
instant the Right Worshipful and worthy member of the City, George Smithes, 
Alderman, departed this transitory life, and on Tliursday the 10^^ August following 
he was interred in the chauncel of the parish church of S^ Marye Steyning, there 
being present at the funeral the Eight Honourable the Lord Mayor of the City, 
with many of the Aldermen, his brethren, and other worshipful persons, who dined 
at Goldsmiths' Hall that day. The Wardens gave license to M'^ Smithes to have 
the use of the Hall, plate, linen, and other necessaries for the funeral dinner. The 
plate, etc., she is to receive by inventory, and re-deliver in good plight, without 
prejudice or charge to the Company the next day after the funeral at the latest." 

The will further contains bequests of a cup value £20 to the city of Bristol ; 
ten pounds to the poor of Wrington and Yatton " at the discretion of my cosen 
M'" John Smythes of Wrington ;" "gownes worth twenty shillings a piece " to fifty- 
four "poor Goldsmythes "ringes with deathes heades worth forty shillings" to 
"my Lady Pemberton, my Lady Jennynges, my brother Barnard, my brother 
Woolhouse, my cosen Artiiur Salwey, my cosen John Smythes," and several others ; 
and "ringes worth twenty shillings a piece" to " my cosen Susane Grub, my cosen 
William Smythes," and others. 

Besides his sons Arthur and William he mentions his daughter Hester and her 
husband Christopher Eyre, his daughter Elizabeth and her husband Edward 
Semster, and his daughter Anne. 

The will was proved by Sarah vSmythes, the widow, on 18 July 1615 (67, Rudd). 

A concise account of George Smythes and his wife Sara Woolhouse, who 
married secondly General Sir Arthur Savage, is given in " The London and Middle- 
sex Note Book," by W. P. W. Phillimore,^M.A., B.C.L. (published 1892). 

(32) Sir Arthur Smythes, the eldest son of Alderman George Smythes (Funeral 
Cert, of George Smithes, Coll. of Arms), was left by his father the manors of 
Ladysbury and Obden, co. Worcester, also property in Gloucestershire (will of 
George Smythes, 67, Kudd). He was knighted 26 February 1623-4, and was still 
living in 1653 (''London and Middlesex Note Book"). In 1631 — 33 he was 
Sheriff of Worcester (Calendar of State Papers, 1631—33, p. 88, etc.). 

(33) William Smythes of Cardington, co. Bedford (Pedigree, Coll. of Arms, 

* From this it would appear that George Smythes died on 11 July 1614, not 1615. The in- 
scription on his monument and his funeral certificate at the College of Arms, however, give 
1615 as the date, and his will was proved on 18 July 1615. 



D. 24, 39), son of Alderman George Smythes, was left by his father the manor of 
Templeton, co. Berks (will of Georo;e Smythes, 67, Rndd). He was chief mourner 
at his father's funeral (Funeral Certificate of George Smithes, College of Arms). 
Matricnlated at St. John's College, Oxford, 19 February 1618, tet. 15 (Alumni 
Oxoniensis, iv.), and was admitted a student of Gray's Inn 1 August 1619 (Foster's 
** Gray's Inn Registers "). He proved the will of his mother. Lady Savage (200, 
Alchin), 3 June 1654. His marriage to Elizabeth, daughter of ... . Cutts, is 
recorded in a pedigree at the College of Arms registered bv his son William 
(D. 24, 39). 

The above William Smythes may be the same person as William Smythes of 
Fleet Street, whose will (521, Ruthen), dated 20 November and proved at London 
16 December 1657 by Elizabeth Smythes his widow, contains the following : — 

In primis I give and bequeath unto my sonne William Smythes the summe 
of fiftie pounds. Item I give and bequeath unto my loving sonne in lawe Master 
Joseph Hobson and unto my loving sone in Lawe Master Robert Tilney the 
summe of Twenty pounds a peece to buy mourning for themselves and their wives 
to wear in my remembrance. Item I give and bequeath unto my grandchild 
Elizabeth Winch the summe of three hundred and fiftie pounds .... my grand- 
child ^lary Winch (both under 18) .... my beloved grandchild John Tilney to 
binde him an apprentice the sume of one hundred pounds .... my grandchild 
Sarah Tilney . ... my grandchild Mary Tilney .... my grandchild Elizabeth 
Tilney .... I give unto my sonne William Smythes an Annuity of fifty pounds 
.... Item I give and bequeath to my dearly beloved wife Elizabeth Smythes all 
the remainder of my estate whatsoever as well real as personall .... making my 
said wife Elizabeth sole executrix." Witnesses : Edward Richards, Fran : Wise- 
man, etc. 

N.B. — No mention is made of any children of the testator's son William, which 
is strange if William of Cardington and William of Fleet Street are the same, for 
William of Bedford, son of the former, had at least two children, Mary and William 
[see below (41) and (42)], born before 1657. There are details, however, in the 
will which suggest that father and son were not on the best of terms. 

(34) Hester Smythes, daughter of Alderman George Smythes, is mentioned by 
her father in his will, also her husband Christopher Eyre of Wiltshire, Citizen and 
Merchant of London (George Smythes' will, 67, Rudd, and his Funeral Certificate 
at the College of Arms). 

(35) Elizabeth Smythes, daughter of Alderman George Smythes, is mentioned 
by her father in his will, also her husband Edward Semster of Herts, Citizen and 
Goldsmith of London (George Smythes' will, 67, Rudd, and his Funeral Certificate, 
College of Arms). 

(36) Anne Smythes, daughter of Alderman George Smythes, is mentioned in 
her father's will (67, Rudd). She was aged nine in 1615, was about to be married 
with the consent of the Court in 1624, and was living as Anne Vernon in 1653 
(Phillimore's " London and Middlesex Note Book.") 

(37) There were two sons named George of Alderman George Smythes who 
died young (Funeral Certificate at the College of Arms). There were also two 
daughters, Frances and Goodliffe, who died in their father's lifetime (Phillimore's 

London and Middlesex Note Book "). 

(38) William Smythes of Bedford, son of William Smythes (33), the son of 
Alderman George Smythes, registered his pedigree from his grandfather (College 
of Arms, D. 24, 39). In this pedigree the details are very meagre, but we learn 
from it that William, son of the Alderman, was "of Cardington, co. Bedford," 
and that he married " Eliz. da. of Cutts," also that William who registered the 



pedigree had two sisters Eliz. and Mary (39 and 40), and married Mary, daughter 
of John Manley of Willshamsted, co. Bedford, and that by her he had the following 
children : Mary, Williara, ^t. 15 anno 1669, John, Eichard, Arthur and Mathew 
(41, 42, 43, 44, 45, and 46). 

(39) Elizabeth Smythes and (40) Mary Smythes, sisters of William Smythes of 
Bedford (College of Arms, D. 24, 39). 

(41) Mary Smythes, (42) William Smythes, set. 15 anno 1669, (43) John 
Smythes, (44) Richard Smythes, (45) Arthur Smythes, (46) TilatheAv Smythes, 
children of William Smythes of Bedford (College of Arms, D. 24, 39). 


The Smythies of Essex and Suffolk. 

(A 1) William Smythies of Gosfields and Walter Belchamp, co. Essex.* The 
Parish Register of Walter Belchamp, co. Essex, begins in the year 1632 with the 
baptismal entry of " W"^ Smitheis son of William and Ann his wife." A sub- 
sequent entry records that this child died and was buried in 1634. In the year 
1635 another son was born and named William. The entry is as follows : " 1635, 
Smytheis, William, son of William and Anne his wife. Baptized March 3." The 
first few entries are followed by a note : " In this year ye Visitors requiring all ye 
names of children baptized to be written in this (parchment) booke out of ye 
pap (paper) booke there uppon we goe back to ye yeare 1559," and amongst the 
entries previous to 1632 is one of the burial of John Smythies, son of William, in 
1626. Another entry, recording the baptism of a child named Marie Mathew on 
8 October 1643, concludes with the words : "by me William Smythies whoe was 
inducted July 7*^ 1623 and left ye Care this October 8t^t 1643." The period 
during which William Smythies held the living of Walter Belchamp is thus fixed. 
The Register of Students" at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, records that on 
4 June 1617 William Smythies was admitted to that College. The date when he 
took his degree is not mentioned, but the Subscription Book for 1627 — 44, fo. 78, 
St. Paul's Cathedral, contains the following entry (translation) : " I, William 
Smythies, Master of Arts, Vicar of Walter Belchamp, admitted to preach and teach 
God's Word in the church (of Walter Belchamp) and other churches in the 
Diocese." Signed Gulielmus Smythies, and dated 6 March 1636. 

In the return made in 1650 of the Ministers and Elders in the various " Classes '* 
of Essex there is this entry : — 

** Gosfield — Rect. Impropriate, £40 ; Possessor, Lord Dacre ; Vicarage, £40 ; 
Incumbent, W^ill. Smythies, by sequestration from John Crosse. He is an able 
Preaching and Godly Minister. Patron, Lord Dacre." (Lansdowne MS. 459, 
fo. 128.) 

The exact date when William Smythies went to Gosfield is not known, but 

* About 1627 John Raymond, of the Hertfordshire fataily of that name, bought the 
Belchamp Hall estate from Sir J. Wentworth, and in 1635 was buried at Belchamp (Berry's 
" Genealogies," Essex). The families of Smythies and Raymond must therefore have been 
known to each other at this time, a matter of some interest, having regard to the subsequent 
intimate connection by marriage between the two families. [See Pedigree A (53, 59, 61, and 
66) and Pedigree B (61), also Notes to Pedigree A (61) and Pedigree B (61).] 

John Raymond was a member of the County Committee for the selection of '* Ministers, 
and it was probably through him that William Smythies was appointed to Gosfield after his 
resignation of the living of Belchamp Walter in 1643. 

f In the pedigree read " 8 October " for " 23 October." 



probably It was between 1647 and 1650.* He held the living till his death in

The Virginia Magazine of History arid BiograjyJnj. Vol. XIX.. No. 2. April 1911. 
Virginia Historical Societj, Richmond, U.S.A. 

This Part commences with the Minutes of Council and General Court, 1622—24, and the Pre- 
fatory Note pays a high compliment to Thomas Jelferson for his preservation of so many of the 
ancient records of Virginia, as quantities of other old Virginia records were burnt in 1SG5 in 
the General Court House at Richmond. 

An account is given of the general prosperous condition of the State, which contained 
between 1500 and 2000 inhabitants settled along James River, and of having been reconciled 
with the Indians, treating them with general kindness, and schools formed, when in March 
1622 the massacre by the Indians occurred, and in a few hours 347 people, including Members 
of Council, were slain by the followers of Apecancanough. A Christian Indian warned the 
inhabitants, and various large palisades held their own, as well as some private planters. With 
returning courage the Virginia Company was assured from England that " the blood shed of the 
people would be the seed of the Plantation." Then follows a long account of the attacks upon 
the Indians, until at last the Indian King sent word that enough blood had been shed on both 
sides, and prisoners were exchanged, and in 1628 the Governor and Council were enabled to 
say that soon there would be 3000 people in the Colony. Tbe Minutes of the Council occupy 
about 36 pages, and are to be continued. 

The Randolph Manuscript is carried on from the previous Part from 1685—88, and is 
chiefly occupied with orders from King James II. and the Council to the Governor and other 
officers, and the continuation of Miscellaneous Colonial Documents commences with that for 
election of Members of Convention in 1775, and Petitions of Inhabitants. Dr. Thomas Walker 
next furnishes reports of the early Settlers in the Kentucky State in 1750, mentioning the 
attacks made by the Indians on the original Settlers, and Colonel Scarborough reports upon his 
efforts to suppress the Quakers in Maryland, who openly defied all authority of Lord Baltimore 
in 1663. In an article on Virginia in 1667 there is the news given of the dreadful firing of the 
City of London in 1666, and also of the attacks made by the Dutch on the shipping on James 
River; and "Virginia Gleanings in England " are continued, giving the wills of several persons 
between 1624 and 1711, and in "Historical Notes and Queries" there is given tbe account of 
the voyage to Virginia of Sir John Zouch with a bond from the English Government dated at 
Greenwich in August 1606 ; there are also given Bible entries of the Tompkins family, Robinson 
and Rolfe families, and some others, interesting to those persons who might be descendants. 
In genealogy the accounts are still continued of the Brent family, illustrated by portraits of 
Colonel Daniel Carroll Brent and Mrs. Eleanor Carroll Brent, and a plate of the old Brent 
tombs in Stafford County ; the genealogy of the Brooke family, from which the Brooke County, 
West Virginia, was named in honour of Governor Brooke. The Chiles and Poindextor families 
are next noted, and the pedigrees of the latter are given. The Reviews finish the Part, and the 
Editor of the Magazine is to be congratulated in being able to publish so much of the early 
history of Virginia, which is alike interesting to his English readers as well as to the present 

The Utah Genealogical and Historical Magazitw. Vol. II., No. 2. April 1911. The Genealogical 

Society of Utah, 60 East South Temple Street, Salt Lake City, Utah, U.S.A. 
We have received the above Part, which gives a portrait of Hyram Smith, the Patriarch among 
the Mormons, and appended is an enthusiast's life of him, giving an account of his violent 
death by being shot with his brother the Prophet, who when he saw his brother fall pierced 
with four bullets turned upon the mob assailing the house and fired his revolver upon them, 
and in another minute he was likewise killed by a species of Lynch law. Of coui-se his country- 
men ought to have known him best, for in the words of his narrators he was all that a worthy 



man coukl be in his home life, but the writer speaks of him as having direct intercourse with 
the Almighty, the offence for which he lost his life at the hands of his countrymen we presume. 

The Part comes to England at a time of reproach by all Englishmen of the tenets of Mor- 
monism, and so we refrain from any criticism of its general contents, though there is a fair 
article upon the history of registration of the births and deaths in England as it was ordered in 
1538, and a fresh Act passed in Queen Victoria's reign in 1837.

parents being of American ancestry, despite his surname, made him welcome, for he received 
bis preliminary instruction at Mount Pleasant Academy, where his father Dr. Hoffman placed 
him, then he went to Union College and gained honours when he was 18. He studied law in 
Sing Sing with other leading men, and took an active part in politics before he was a voter, and 
became a partner with Judge Leonard until the latter was chosen to the Supreme Court in 
1859. He afterwards was made Recorder, though he was thought to be " too young" for the 
place. When afterwards he was made Governor he issued an order to allow a procession to be 
held in 1871 which brought about a riot, and the Pioman Catholics were furious, although by his 
action he had the praise of all the patriotic people of the country. In after life his health gave 
way, particularly by the loss of a grandson whom he idolized, and in 1888 he went abroad, and 
while at Wiesbaden chatting with his wife and granddaughter in the sitting-room of the hotel 
he rose to perform an act of courtesy to Mrs. Hoffman and fell dead at her feet, aged 60. 

The article is well written by Mr. Adrian H. Joline. It is followed by a long list of bap- 
tisms and marriages pejforroed by the Rev. Joshua Hartt of Long Island, who received in fees 
"all the way from £50 to a copper ladle 1" There is a list of upwards of 700, which is to be 
continued. The Thacher-Thatcher genealogy up to 1732 is still carried on from former Parts, 
and " Clues from English Archives," enumerating the families of Paine of Hereford, 16-19-50 ; 
Harper of London, 1659-60 ; Richard Wright, Rector of Everden, co. Northampton, in 1633 ; 
and many others. The descendants of Edward Treadwell are given at great length, carrying 
the family from his son John from 1660 up to 1691-2, and occupying 16 pages. The article is 
still continued of " A Digest of Essex Wills," giving particulars of twenty-six families associated 
with persons of importance in the American Colonies. The Part concludes with a long list of 
Pedigrees registered with the Journal and intended for future publication, and the usual reviews 
and the list of Officers are given up to date.

The Suieville Hewetsoxs (Hewsoxs), Kilkenny branch, had for eponym— 

D II. John HewsoD, Esq.y of Briska, co. Limerick (second son of Francis 
Hewetson or Hewson (see C supra, p. 244), and brother of Georo^e Hewson (see 
D I supra, p. 244), was born circa 1G64, and living ut Briska previous to and in 
1704, possessing tlie lands of Briskaghmore of 164 acres and Briskaghbegg of 
52 acres (which had been granted to George Evans in 1666) by deed dated 
3 July 1705, made between George Evans the younger of Carass, co. Limerick, 
Esq., and John Hewson. In the year 1729, it' appears that by deeds of lease 
and release of 22 and 23 September 1729 Mr. Hewson leased 161 acres and 
2 roods of these lands to Thomas Holland of Crossagalla, co. Limerick, Esq., 
for terms of Uves for ever. His brother George, who made his will 4 November 
1735, appointed him executor and bequeathed him five pounds for mourning 
and his watch. He married Elizabeth, daughter of Ephraim Monseli, Esq., 
of Tervoe House, co. Limerick, ancestor of the Lords Emly. (Tradition says 
that she had a grant from the King to release a man from the gallows at every 
assize, and that on o?ie occasion she exercised the prerogative!). Her sister 
Abigail was married to the Rev. John Parker, Rector of "St. John's, Limerick, 
and had a daughter x\bigail who was married to her first-cousin John Hewson, 
Esq., of Briska. The issue of this marriage was, besides a daughter Elizabeth, 
six sons (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, below ; 6, post) :— 

1. John Hewson, Esq., Captain, of Briska, born 1697. 

2. George Hewson, Esq., Barrister-at-Law, named in his uncle's will, born 
in 1707; entered Trinity College, Dublin, 22 ^larch 1733, aged 18. He died 
28 October 1749, aged 42 years, and was buried in the churchyard of ''Old" 
Kilkeedy Church. His wife was Jane, daughter of born 1719; died 
26 February 1781, aged 62 years, having, as their joint tombstone announces, 
" remained in widowhood thirty-one years in her husband's memory." 

3. James Hewson, Esq. (said to have written his name Hewetson), of Mount 
Hewson (or Jockey Hall), Patrick's AYell, co. Limei ick, Attorney-at-Law, born 
in 1706 ; married . . . ., but died sine prole. In 1798 he was practising as K.E. 
(at Ship Street, Dublin) in the King's Bench Exchequer. Traditi(m hands down 
" his having been a famous sportsman, and being celebrated for the breed of 
his hunters, and also, that when they could no longer enjoy their existence he 
had them shot and buried on his estate." 

4. Edward Hewson, Esq., born 1702. 

5. Monsell Hewson (Rev.), born at Briska 1704 ; entered Trinity College, 
Dublin, 21 May 1724, aged 20 years, B.A. spring 1729, M.A. spring 1735 ; 
named executor in his father-in-law's will of 1735; of the Diocese of Down 
in 1729. He married Mabel, daughter of Thomas Bolton, Esq., of Colgah, co. 
Louth (named in her father's will, dated 9 March 1735 and proved 6 May 
1736), and had two sons, George Hewson, Esq. (the younger, born circa 1730), of 
Moorsdale, co. Kilkenny, who married Anne, daughter of ... . Walton, Esq., of 
Burnchurch, co. Kilkenny, by licence dated 18 August 1769. The eldest was — 

5a. John Hewson (Hewetson in 1764 and onwards) (Rev.), of Suirville in 
the Barony of Iverk, co. Kilkenny, and of the City of Waterford, born in County 
Down 1728; entered Trinity College, Dublin, as "John Hewson," son of 
Monsell Hewson, 28 May 1745, aged 17 ; became a. Scholar in 1749 ; B.A. 
as "John Hewson or Hewetson" spring 1750; ordained at Cloyne as "John

Hewson" 18 May 1752. Oq account of his proficiency in learning his College 
fees were remitted. He was appointed a Justice of the Peace for the county 
of Kilkenny as the Rev. John Hewetson" 2 November 1764. On 10 Sep. 
1772 he was appointed Rector of As^lish Martin, near Suirville, and was also 
Vicar of Rathkieran. In April 1774 he became Chaplain to the Earl of Carrick. 
He was of handsome presence, noble mien and bearing, of invincible energy, 
fearless courage, and endowed with great intellectual powers, and at the age of 
68, two years before his decease, his handwriting was firm, neat, and bold, as 
shewn by the following facsimile : — 

He and the parish priest of Moncoin were on intimate terms, so much so that 
the latter when passing through his last illness sent for his friend to converse 
with him upon spiritual matters concerning himself. As regards the Rector's 
children, he used to call them his " little Bantams," and often when they 
passed his house on their way to church he gave them rest, together with 
light edibles and milk. 

The old Rector, spoken of as Doctor Hewson, and his six sons are traditions 
at the present day, and the 200 acres of land he had are still called by the 
name of " Hewson's Quarter." 

The last year of his life was disturbed by a recurrence of the sad events 
which he experienced in the vigour of his manhood thirty-five years before, by 
the breaking out of the rebellion of 1798. His life was attempted often and 
in various ways, abroad, and in his own house situated on a grand reach of the 
noble flowing Suir. His assassination had been prevented more than once, out 
of esteem, by a certain priest in his chair of confession dissuading his determined 
assassins from their bloody purpose. Upon another occasion the deposit in the 
hall of the parsonage of a rebel concealed in a wooden case, intended to murder 
the household after retiring to rest, was discovered in time. Again, guarding 
against possible abuse of acting kindly to some boatmen of the Suir, a case 
of pikes was prevented being left in an outhouse, destined for use in a surprise 
attack by the rebels. He is mentioned by the historians " jMusgrave " and 
"Froude," and was known as " Whiteboy Hewetson" on account of his spirited 
and laudable exertions in supporting the laws of his country and suppressing 
the Whiteboy insurrection at the daily hazard of his life, which called forth 
the approval of and public recognition by the Government in 1766, followed 
in 1767 by an "address of thanks" presented by the Grand Jury of the county 
of Dublin. At the commencement of this rebellion Mr. Hewetson entertained 
at his parsonage the celebrated Commander of H.M. troops General Sir Henry 
Johnson and his Officers. In November 1820 the General was living at Bath, 
where he afterwards died. 

In June 1798, when visiting his second son James at Kilmacthomas Rectory, 
Waterford county, he deceased at the age of seventy years. It was intended to 
have buried him there, but his old parishioners of Aglish, Rathkieran, and Suir- 
Yille repaired in a body to Kilmacthomas (representing that as he had lived so 
many years in their midst he should be laid to rest among them), and they accord- 
ingly conveyed his body by a cross-country route to the river Suir, near the 
debouchement of the Clodugh stream, then over the river in the " house boat " 
to the house. Upon arriving at the confines Irish sentiment shewed itself by 



their passing the body over the "stile in the wall," instead of through the 
carriage way, saying, that as the Doctor had passed over the stile so many 
times he should go over it again for the last time. 

The intermsnt took place in the elevated churchyard of Rathkieran, and he 
was laid by the side of his daughter-in-law Barbara and her five children, under 
the cerulean vault of heaven, in the shadow of the chancel wall to await the 
dawning of the last Easter morn. He married circa 1756 Catherine (who died 
after 1798) [a descendant of Rollo the Xorraan, baptized into the Christian 
church as Robert in 912, and the second son of his ^reat-great-grandson 
Drogo or Dru, son of Walter de Ponz ; also descent from King John and 
King Henry I.], eldest daughter of William Drew, Esq. (of Ballinlough, near 
Rathkieran), by his wife Mary, daughter of Emmanuel Poe, Esq., of Sols- 
borough, CO. Tipperary, grandson of John Drew, Esq., of Kilwinny and Meanus, 
who married Margaret, daughter of the Very Reverend Robert A%lor, Dean 
of Limerick, brother of Ivan, mother of the first Earl of Cork. There were 
by this marriage thirteen children, as follows (a, b, below ; c—^,post) :— 

A. John Hewetson (ne Hewson), Esq., born circct 1757, Captain 89th Regt. 
of Foot ; described as an uncommonly fine man with dark hair and complexion, 
the very perfection of an Irish Officer, and most amiable and jolly ; entered 
the Army 20 May 1781; married Anne (whose soubriquet was "beautiful 
Nancy"), daughter of Paul Schuhcraft, Esq. (of good fortune), by whom there 
were two sons and two daughters. The eldest son — 

John Milliquet Hewetson {ne Hewson), Esq., born circa 1793 ; died 7 June 
1869 ; Major 89th Regiment. He served in the Burmese War and Peninsular 
He was residing in Kensington in 1862, and tradition represents him as a " hand- 
some young fellow," and compliments his wealthy wife "Genevieve Beaumont " 
in having done well to make such a worthy investment. There was no issue of 
this marriage. He signed his short patronymic. He was insticuted a Military 
Knight of Windsor on the lower foundation, by patent dated 20 August 1866, 
and installed on the 30th as " Major John Milliquet Hewson," and dfed 7 June 
1869. [The Military Knights of Windsor are connected with the Colle^-e of 
St. George and the Order of the Garter, instituted 23 April 13-49, and are 
Officers eminent for military services who have distinguished themselves in 
war and rendered faithful service to their country, yet in their old age find them- 
selves solely dependent on a very diminutive pension. From the King they 
receive an annuity and apartments in Windsor Castle. The Order was founded 
by King Edward III., and confirmed by Henry Till, and Queen Elizabeth, 
bachelors and widowers only being eligible. They consist of a Governor and 
twelve Knights on the upper and five on the lower foundation. The uniform 
consists of a red swallow-tail coat, dark blue trousers, cocked hat with red 
and white plume, crimson silk sash, and a leather belt for sword. Rows pf 
medals proclaim their past achievements.]

Rockmount, Killinchy, co. Down, Rector of that place and of Kilmacthomas' co 
Waterford ; entered Trinity College, Dublin, 9 July 1774, aged 15, havin^r

and took his B.A. Degree in the spring of 1779. The living of Killinchy, with 
a glebe house on eleven acres of land near the church, to which he was inducted 
June 1794, was in the alternate patronage of the Earl of Carrick and 
Viscount Bangor. His curate there in 1806 was the Rev. Henry Hulberc 
Wolseley, who also was tutor to the family, and eventually married one of the 
daughters, and from 1810—1840 he held the Vicarage of Saintfield, co. Down.

Division) Royal Artillery, with which he had a continuous connection for thirty- 
three years. He not only passed every possible service examination, but super- 
numerary as well. It was due to his technical military knowledc^e and skill that 
the difliculty which followed the introduction of large calibre ordnance into 
the Army was overcome, viz., the insufficient explosive force of the gunpowder 
unti then in use, the bore of the new ordnance requiring a much larger grain 
in the gunpowder than the old. He corresponded with the makers of the 
ordnance, who accepted and acted upon his theory, but did nothing whatever 
in the way of acknowledgment for so valuable a secret— szc mundus. He acted 
as a Justice of the Peace for the counties of Dublin and Wexford; dying

I. Egbert ITerries acquired Halldjkes in the following way. On 3 June 1652 
James Steill in Brierhill and his son WiHiam entered into a contract to sell a wadset 
(i.e. the original seller had a right of redemption) of the Little Hutton or Halldvkes 
estate bought by their family in 1644 from James (Murray), 2nd Earl of Annandale, 
to Janet Mackison, spouse to Mr. Robert Herries, Minister at Drysdale, and to her 
son Robert Herries ; and on 30 May 1654 Ronald Brown, portioner of Leitfield, 
who had been allowed a " decreet of apprizeing " ngainst the two Steills, 4 May 1654, 
joined with them in conveying this wadset to Mr. Robert Herries and Janet 
Mackison his spouse, who had sasine of the property 24 Juiy (reo:istered at 
Dumfries 30 August) 1654. They disponed it to their son Robert Herrfes 24 Aug. 
1660. He obtained a more secure tenure of it by entering, 18 December 1701, int'o 
a contract of fen, whereby David (Murray), 5th Yiscount Stormont (inheritor of 
some of the above-named Earl of xVnnandale's lands and titles),* ratified the fore- 
going transactions and conveyed the Halldykes estate to Robert Herries in life- 
rent and to William Herries his eldest lawful son, and his heirs and assigns, in fee,

*' Robert Herreis of Haldkyes^" [sic] was imprisoned from 12 July to 6 August 
1677 for " Deforcement of James Murray, messenger," when executing " letters of 
• Poinding" at^the instance of Lord Stormont against Adam Newall,t "Chamber- 
lain to the Earl of Southesque, by firing a pistol at Gilbert Cowpar, one of the 
messenger's assistants, and thereafter assaulting him with his drawn Sword." 
("Edinburgh Justiciary Court Records," i., pp. 223, 224, 230, being vol. xlviii. of 
the Scottish Hist. Soc.) 

Robert Herries of Halldykes died before 10 May 1704, having married "Jane 

daughter of Irving of Cove" (MS. Pedigree of 1789), parish of Kirkpatrick 

Fleming, Dumfriesshire, by whom he had issue : — 

1. William, above mentioned, who died before 5 August 1703. 

2. Robert, of whom see below (Xo. IL). 

3. "A daughter, married to ... . Graham of Mossband." (MS. Pedigree 

of 1789.) Another MS. pedigree (at St. Julians) gives a third son 
James and a daughter Margaret, wife of John Carruthers of Dor- 
raont, Dumfriesshire. A James Herries in Halldykes was a witness 
at the above-mentioned sasine of 2 January 1702, and the confirm- 
ation of the testament of Katheriu "Herreis, spouse to John 
Carrutheris of Dormount" at Dumfries, 26 March 1657, proves 
that she died leaving five children in December 1656, a date which 
shews that she cannot have been the daughter of Robert Herries of 
Halldykes whose parents were married in 1618. 

II. Robert Herries as "of Halldykes" was served heir general to his 
" Brother William Herries of Halldykes" 5 August 1703, and had sasine of Hall-

son of Sir John Malcolm, Bart., so created '^v.p. when under age, 
25 July 1665 (G, E. C. "Complete Baronetage," it., pp. 24o-6). 
Robert'Malcolm died " abroad 3 June 1769, aged 87 " (ibid.), and 
" Mrs. Isabella Herries, widow of Robert Malcolm, Esq., of Grange, 
died 7 August 1793 "at Edinburgh." C Scots Magazine,' k., 
p. 4U.) The testament dative, inventory, etc., of Isabella Herries, 
widow of Archibald [s/c] Malcolm of Grange, who died in 1793, was 
confirmed at Edinburgh 3 January 1795, being given up by Sir 
Robert Herries, Knight, Banker in London, her nephew (her 
brother William's eldest son), who had evidently forgotten his 
uncle's Christian name. 

Ill AViLLiAM Herries had sasine of Halldykes 23 October (registered at 
Dumfries 15 December) 1735, by virtue of a Precept of Clare Constat, dated 
21 and 27 June 1728, by David, Viscount (with consent of David Master ^t) 
Stormont, in his favour as lawful heir of the deceased Robert Herries of Haildykes, 
his fathei', to whom as his son and as " of Haildykes" he was served heir-general 
n Anril 1737. The date of 1697 given for his birth in some Mb. pedigrees 
is perhaps too early, for his brother John (not the youngest) was born as late 
as 1721 Tradition says he was extravagant and devoted to sport. For the benetifc 
of his creditors he disponed, 2 January 1751, to Mr. Goldie of Craigmuie and 
others his landed estate, which was bought at auction at Dumfries, ^2 October 
1751 by his brother Robert according to a " Docquette at^ the end ot the 
Inventory" mentioned above in the list of authorities for this pedigree. He 
lived henceforward at Rosebank, a farm on the Haildykes property where he died 
24 September 1777, according to a letter (at St. Julians) to his brother Robert (in 
London), signed William Murray and dated Murrayfield, 25 September 1/77. 

He raarned " first Katherine, eldest daughter of John Henaerson of Broadholme 
in Annandale" (MS. Pedigree of 1789). She died 8 February 1768, in her 61st 
year according to a copy (at St. Julians) of the inscription on her toinbstone m 
^ATd^h Old Churchyard, where she and her Ijnsband were buried.* His second 
wife who is said to have been of an inferior class m life (both her Christian and 
snrn'ames are left blank in the MS. pedigree of 1789), was called Susanna as 
appears from receipts signed by her for money sent her by her step-son Colonel 
Charles Herries, the last (at 53 Warwick Square) being dated Lockerbie, 3 July 
1813 There were children of both marriages, of whom the writer proposes to 
give an account in the second part of this pedigree. William Herries s brother- 
ly Robert Herries, second son of Robert Herries (Xo. II ), was sometime 
a merchant at Rotterdam, where he was visited in 1745 by Dr. Alexander Carlyle, 
minister of Inveresk, an Edinburgh celebrity in his time who describes him 
r" Autobioo- 163-4) as a handsome young man of a good family in Annandale, 
who had not succeeded in business at Dumfries, and had been sent over by my 
uncle Provost George Bell of that town as their agent . He had immediately 
assimilated to the manners of the Dutch and was much respected among them. 

* Her sister Grace Henderson, wife of William Johnstone of Lockerbie, was grandmother, 
throuS Lr dTugh er Grace Johnstone, Lady Douglas, of the 5th and 6th Marquesses of Queens- 
l^r?y For some account of these Miss Hendersons some papers m the •' AnD.a^^fle 
Sid/' reprinted (at Lockerbie, 1865) un - Dryfesdale Old Kirkyard and Lx- 

pulsions round Lockerbie," 



Having acquired " what was considered in those days a competent fortune," says 
Sir William Forbes of Pitsligo ("Memoirs of a Bankin.i? House," 17), he "re- 
turned to his own country, where he purchased from his eldest brother the family 
estate of Halldykes."* Here he lived till 1771, when he removed to London to 
become "acting partner" in a bank that his brother William's eldest son Robert 
(knighted in 1774) was setting up in St. James's Street, for which position Sir 
William Forbes (" Memoirs of a Banking House," 30), an original partner in the 
concern, says he was " extremely well qualified." The " Gentleman's Magazine " for 
1791 (July— December, 972) thus announces his death on 3 October : " At his 
house in King Street, S^ James's, in his 82^^ year, Eobert Herries, esq., of Halldyke, 
formerly partner in the banking house of his nephew, Sir Rob. H. of London. He 
is succeeded in his landed estate in Scotland by his only son of the same name." 
Between this son and his daughter Maria his personalty was to be divided accord- 
ing to his will (in which he is described as " of Halldykes .... now^ residing in 
London ") dated 10 July 1786 and proved 26 October 1791 (P.C.C., 465, Bevor). 
He desires if he dies in London to be buried with his wife in Bunhill Fields Ceme- 

He married in 1747 " Isabella, eldest daughter of Sir Thomas Kirkpatrick of 
Closeburn, (3rd) Bart." (MS. Pedigree of 1789.) She died 17 October 1777, 
aged 47, according to a mourning ring and her son's MS. Book (both at 53 War- 
wick Square). By her he had issue :t — 

1. Robert, of whom presently (Xo. V.). 

2. Susanna. The "Scots Magazine" (xxxi.,447) thus announces her death 

(at the age of 20, according to a mourning ring) on 10 August 
1769 : "At Haldykes, Miss Susie Herries, eldest daughter of Robert 
Herries, Esq. ; of Haldykes." 

3. Maria, born 21 August 1762. She died 10 May 1834, according to 

the MS. Book of her brother with whom she lived. 

y. Robert Herries was born at Halldykes 31 October 1767, according to his 
MS. Memorandum Book (at 53 Warwick Square). Sometime a partner in the 
above-mentioned bank in St. James's Street, he retired from business in 1815 and 
settled at Glenlyn, Lynmouth, North Devon. He also bonght, apparently in partner- 
ship with his cousin the Right Hon. John Charles Herries (eldest son of Colonel 
Charles Herries, second sorT of the first marriage of William Herries of Halldykes, 
No. IIL), land near Sevenoaks in Kent, where he built in 1822 a house called 
St. Julians, which he made over about 1836 to the same cousin. He died at 
Glenlyn 27 October 1845, and was buried at Brendon, near Lynmouth. In his 
will dated 21 September 1841, with a codicil of 12 February 1845, and proved 
(P.C.C.) 19 December 1845, he mentions the death of his sister Maria, and names 
as executors and principal legatees the above-mentioned Right Hon. J. C. Herries 
" and his brother " Sir William Lewis Herries. The latter (described in the legacy 
receipt as descendant of a brother of the deceased's father) inherited Glenlyn and 
the testator's house in King Street, St. James's. Among the other legatees 
were Sir Charles Kirkpatrick, 6th Bart, (called in the legacy receipt descendant of 
a brother of the deceased's mother), and James, 10th LordTorpichen, whose mother 
was a Kirkpatrick. 

* His Account Books shew that he also bought in 1751 Broadholme, sometime the property 
of John Henderson, brother of Mrs. William Herries (So. Ill), for £920, and that he sold it in 
1770 to " Gordon of Halleaths " for £1.900. 

t Robert Herries's Account Books (at St. Julians) record the following payments : 24 August 
1762, one guinea to the poor and three to Mrs. Hughes, midwife, "on the baptism of my 
daughter Maria, born the 21st "; 1 November 1767, two guineas to the midwife and two shillings 
for an " Express to Closeburn to announce the birth of my son "; October 1770, "to Dr. Clapper- 
ton for inoculating my son £2 : 2, to Mr. Yorstoun, Surgeon, for attending him £3 : 3 and a 
watch "; June 1769, two guineas each to Drs. Gregory, Clapperton, and Gilchrist for a " consulta- 
tion about my eldest daughter Susa." 




MS. notes of Robert Herries (at 53 Warwick Square) and advertisements of 
sale (at St. Julians) shew that he sold the Halldvkes estate (maiuly to Mr. Tliomas 
Beattie and Mr. William Stewart) in portions froin 1801 to 1803 for £9,150. 
The property then consisted of 785 Scots (about 1000 English) acres, of which 217 
were "mere heath," divided into five farms brino-ing in £264 10s. a year, 
apparently all paid in money. The tenants besides their rent paid the Land tax, 
Bridge, Rogue (a police rate), and Road monev, and the school salarv. The land- 
lord had to pay yearly £7 (partly in kind) towards the minister's stipend and his 
feu-duty of £3 Gs. 8cL to the feudal superior of the lands, the (3rd) Earl of Mans- 
field (8th Viscount Stormont). Robert Herries the father (as his Account Books 
at St. Julians shew) gave £2,700 for the property in 1751, and a " Rentall" (at 
St. Julians) signed by Mr. Goldie and purporting to be referred to in the "trust 
disposition " granted by William Herries (>so. III.), 2 January 1751, oives the then 
yearly rents from six farms and a " milu " at £120 IO5. ScL, paid (as the custom 
then was) partly m money, partly in services, such as carting hav or peat, and 
partly in kam " fowls, of which fifty-four valued at fourpence each were due yearly 
from the tenants ; the feu-duty and payment to the minister were the same as in 
1801. £120 was a high rental for so small a property at that time if Mr. H. G. 
Graham may be trusted, who says (" Social Life in Scotland in the 18th Century," 
1., 4) that a '• Scots landowner in the early part of the century was wealthy with a 
rent roll of £500, rich with an income of from £300 to £200, well otf with £100 
or £80 ; and many gentlemen of good degree .... had to preserve their station 
with £50 to £20 a year."

The Smythies of Essex axd Suffolk. 

(A 10) William Smythies, son of William Smythies (A 1), is recorded in 
Emmanuel College Registers as having entered that College in 1651, and taken his 
A.B. degree in 1659. In 1660 he was presented by Robert Baldock to the Rectorv 
of Tacolneston in Norfolk, and held that living till 1671, when he resigned 
(Blomfield's "Norfolk," v., 170); after that he was, as is shewn by a family 
document (Deed of assignment of the Whitehouse and lands in Witnesham in the 
county of Suffolk by Elizabeth Cremer, iiee Palmer, widow of Robert Cremer, to 
William Smythies, dated 18 March 1673), for a time resident in and probably 
Curate of the parish of St. Mary Matfellon, Whitechapel, but during the year 1673 
he became Curate-in-charge of the church of St. Giles, Crippleo-ate° and his name 
first appears in the church books as Chairman of the Yestry Meeting held on the 
17th_April of that year. The titular vicar was one of the bishops, biit the position 
was in fact filled by William Smythies, who for over thirty years, when religious 
feeling ran high and much tact must have been required, conducted the spiritual 
affairs of this important parish. The last time his name appears as Curate and 
Chairman of the Yestry is in April 1704. In the following June Samuel Burgis 
is shewn as Curate and Chairman. The deed quoted above, and others still In 
possession of his descendants, shew that during the time William Smytiiies was at 
Cripplegate he gradually acquired a property known as the Whitehouse and lands 
Situated in the parish of Witnesham, co. Suffolk, from his wife's relations, the 

* Continued from p. 286. 



Palmers, the final deed being a release to him of this property by Charles Palmer 
his brother-in-law, dated 24= September 1698. To tliis property he retired iu his 
old age, and^for three years acted as Curate of Wicuesliara. 

On 12 November 1674, as recorded in the register of St. Giles's, Cripplccrace, 
the poet John Milton was buried in that cluirch, and William Smythies, b'eino- 
then Ourate-in-charge, presumably performed or at anv rate assisted at the cere° 
mony. Tolerant m his views and charitable to all in distress, he sutFered much 
abuse and calumny himself through being kind to those whose religious views were 
difterent from his own. Plis enemies tried to prove that he was disloyal to the 
throne,^ because in one of his sermons he spoke with disapproval of " the Prince of 
this \\orld," and some spiteful people brought it to the ear of the King that he 
was "an associate with dissenters," in those days a serious accusation, but he 
managed to hold his own and to continue his good works. 

As a preacher and religious controversialist he was well known, and a pamphlet 
of his entitled " The Benefit of Early Piety," addressed to the three young sons of 
his friend Sir Nathaniel Hern, first published in 1684, had in 1729 reached 
a fifteenth edition. He is described on the title-page of this pamphlet as 
^Morning Lecturer at S^ Michael, Cornhil, London." With Sir P. I'Estrange 
("The Observator "), who seems to have made it his business to attack the bishops 
and prominent clergy, he had a heated controversv, in the course of which he 
refers to his experiences before the Restoration, and savs when ''1 had hid myself 
in a private place in the Essex Hundreds I was routed" thence by one of Oliver's 
Agents because my name was then Malignant." ("Three Replies to the 
Observator," 1684 ; " The Benefit of Early Piety," 1684 ; "Advice to Apprentices," 
1687 ; and other pamphlets, British Museum.) 

The following entries occur in the Parish Register at Witnesham :— 

1715. The Rev^ M^ ^y^' Smythies, many years Curate of Giles Cripplegate, 
in London, and three years Curate of this Parish, was buried in the Churchyard at 
the Chancell end. June 29." 

1719. M" Hephzibah Smythies, Relict of the Reverend M^ Smythies, late of 
Cripplegate, buried. Aged 84. May 12. She lies in the South Wing of the 
Church amongst her own Relations the Palmers, a Family of Good Sort and 
Standing in this Parish tho now reduced." 

By his will William Smythies left the Whitehouse, Witnesham, with all the 
lands thereunto belonging, to Hephzibah his wife "during her life and after her 
decease to my grandson Palmer Smythies and to his heirs .... wihing him to pay 
. yearly to my brother-in-law Charles Palmer forty shillings .... nevertheless if it 
shall so happen that his mother Thamar Smythies become a widow then she the said 
Thamar shall after the death of my said wife have the full rents, etc., excepting 
the forty shillings .... so long as she continues a widow. I give .... goods and 
furniture to my granddaughter Hephzibah Meadows, desiring her to preserve the 
wrought Bed for her Daughter Hephzibah, now a child. Also I give unto my wife 
six spoons, five salts, one salver, one Ladle, one porringer, all silver .... (annuities 

here follow) unto each of my two great-grandchildren James and Hephzibah 

Meadows a silver tankard, and to their sister Sarah Meadows my silver coffee-potfc

also I give unto my son Peter Smythies and to his heirs my Coppyhold house

Smythies, and Susan Smythies of Colchester each of them ten pounds Lastly 

I give unto my dear friend M-" Robert Goodwin, Rector of Liston in the County of 

Essex, Twenty pounds and do ... . appoint him executor. Dated 9 July

(A 11) Robert Sraythies wns born when William Smythies his father was 
Rector of Tacolneston, and his baptism is recorded in the Parish Register as fol- 
lows : " Ano 1665. Robertus filiiis Willielmi Smythies & Hephziba uxoris ejus 
natus fuit qiiinto die Novembris baptizatns decimo tertio die ejusdem mensis an* 
p'^dicto." The Register of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, contains the following 
entry : " 1684, Jun. 25. Smythies, Robert, S.R. Norf., A.B. 1687." 

(A 12) Christopher Smythies was also born when William Smythies his father 
was Rector of Tacolneston. His baptismal entry in the Parish Register is as fol- 
lows : " 1666. Christopher filius Wilielmi Smythies & Hephziba uxoris ejus bap- 
tizatns fuit vicesimo octaTO (?) die mensis Decembris An^ p^'dicto." He only lived 
two years and a half. His burial is recorded as follows : " 1669. Christopher 
Sraythies sepulcus quinto die July." 

N.B. — It is likely that James Sraythies who is recorded in the College Register 
as having entered Emmanuel College,"^ Cambridge, 3 July 1686, was another son of 
William Sraythies (A 10), born between 1666 and 1673. He is not shewn as 
having taken the degree of A.B., and he is not mentioned in the will of 
William Smythies (171-1) ; probably therefore, if he was his son, he died 

(A 13) Peter Smythies was bora several years after his elder brothers, when his 
father William Smythies was curate-in-charge of St. Giles's, Cripplegate, in the 
Registers of which church is the following entry : " Baptisms. Peter s. (son of) 
William Smytheis, Clerk, and of Hephzibah, borne 22^^ December (1673), christened 
5*^ Jan^"y 1674." He " was the youngest son of William Smythies, late of Witnes- 
ham in the County of Suffolk, Clerk" (Cardons Hall in Witneshara, Mr, Sergeant 
Smythies' release of title to the Rev. Mr. Palmer Smythies, dated 12 January 1741), 
and had one son named Sergeant Smythies (see A 14, below). 

In the deed quoted above he is referred to as of the City of Norwich." His 
wife's name is not known, but the peculiar Christian name given to his son suggests 
that her surname may have been Sergeant. 

Peter Smythies was left the " coppyhold house lately inhabited by Charles 
Palmer with all the coppyhold Lands .... lying in Witnesham "* by the will of his 
father, proved 1715 (see A 10, above). 

(A 14) Sergeant Smythies, the son of Peter Smythies. In a deed, still in the 
possession of the family, dated 12 January 1741 (Cardons Hall in Witnesham, 

Sergeant Smythies' release of Title to the Rev*^ M"" Palmer Smythies), Ser- 
geant Smythies is thus cited : " Sergeant Smythies of the City of London, only son 
of Peter Smythies of the City of Norwich in the County of Norfolk, who was the 
youngest son of William Smythies, late of Witnesham in the County of Suffolk, 
Clerk, deceased." The deed is too long to quote at length. Its object is to remove 
a doubt, due to the wording of the will of William Smythies, as to the title of Palmer 
Smythies to three acres of land forming part of the property in Witnesham left him 
by his grandfather William Smythies, aud it records that " Whereas the said Peter 
Smythies the father of the said Sergeant Smithies as youugest son of the said 
William Smythies was, according to the custom of the said manor, heir of the said 
William, the said Palmer Smythies to clear the doubt arising upon his title . . . . 
hath contracted and agreed with the said Sergeant Smythies for all his estate, right 
title and interest therein at the price and for the sura of therteen pounds two 
shillings and sixpence." 

Sergeant Sraythies is believed to have died unmarried. Had he had a son, the 
son's rights in the Witnesham property, as well as his own, would doubtless have 
been renounced in the document quoted above.

(A 15) William Smychies of Mile End,* Colchester, son of William Smythies of 
Witnesham (A 10). The Parish Registers at Tacolnescon record the baptism of 
William Smythies as follows: " An-^ 1GG3, Gnliemus filius Gulielmi Smythies & 
Hephzibah uxoris ejus baptizatns fait vicesimo quinto die Martii an*^ p''dicto." 

At Emmanuel College, Cambridge, he graduated A.B. 16.s2 (Grad. Cant. 1659 
to 1823, B.M.) ; became Rector of Sc.^ Michael's, Mile End, 20 Dec. 1687 (Xewcourt). 

In the churcli of St. Michael, Mile End, is the following mural inscription : 
"Juxta jacet Gulielmus Smythies hujus Parochige Rector ann. 32. obiic Mar. 7 
1719 [the pedigree in Add. MSS. 10,1^:9, fo. 205, gives 9 March 1720 as the date 
of death], aat. 57. Jacet etiam in are proxirae suorgestum [?, Letterins^ blurred] 
Tharaor uxor ejus: Obiit Xov. 6, 1734, setatis 69, relictis septem sepultis 4 liberis." 

His wife's maiden name was Thamar Furley (Add. MSS. 19,149, fo. 205). 
She was daughter and coheiress of Stephen Furley of Colchester. 

(A 16) John Smythies, son of William Smythies of Witnesham (A 10). The 
Parish Registers at Tacolneston record ihe baptism of John Smythies as follows : 
" An° 1664. Johaues filius Willielmi Smythies & Hephziba uxoris ejus bapcizatus 
fait vicesimo secundo die mensis Aprili An'^ p-dicto."' 

John Smythies, Groton, Clerk, who is mentioned in the Suffolk Poll, 1702, 
may be identical with this John. Xo mention is made of his son John by William 
Smythies in his will (1714), and he was probably dead before that date. 

(A 17) William Smythies of Colchester, son of William Smythies of Mile End 
(A 15), was born 10 Jauuary 1698-9 and baptized at St. Michael's, Mile End Mdd. 
MSS. 19,149, fo. 205). His epitaph in the churchyard of St. Michael's, Mile End, 
is as follows: " Xear this stone is buried M^ William Smythies formerly of Col- 
chester, Surgeon, who died April 13'^ 1772, Aged 75 Years. Deceased was Father 
of James Blatch, Esq., whose remains are deposited in the next grave, and brother 
of the Rev. P. Smythies, for manv years Rector of this Parish." He was buried 
20 April 1772 (Add. MSS. 19,149, fo. 205). 

He married as his 1st wife, 12 February 1734, at St. Mary Magdalen's, Col- 
chester, Margarita Richard, daughter of . . .\ de Vandergues, who was buried at 
St. Michael's, Mile End, 4 January 1737, and as his 2nd wife Elizabeth, daughter 
of ... . Blatch (Add. MSS. 19,149, fo. 205), wiio died 11 September 1807. 

(A 18) Thomas Smythies of Lavenhara, son of William Smythies of Mile End 
(A 15), was at Sidney-Sussex Coll., Cambridge, and graduated A.B. 1725 and A.M. 
1729 (Grad. Cant. 1659 to 1823, B.M.). He was Master of the Free Grammar School 
in Lavenham from 1732 to 1746 (X'ewcourt's Repertorium," p. 946), and in 1743 
purchased the living of Alpheton, co. Suffolk, as shewn by the following : — 

An Indenture made 24 Jan. in the 17ch year of the reign of King George II.

By the will of William Smythies of Witnesham Thomas Smythies inherited 
a copyhold house in Witnesham,* with all the copyhold lands adjoining (see A 10, 
above). This was probably Cardons Hall (see A 31, below). 
. Thomas Smythies died without issue (affidavit made by Rev. John Smythies 
in 1815). 

* Erratum. — In the pedigree, for " Walter Belchamp " read " Witnesham." 



Walasses Farm in Great Maplestead belonged to the widow of the Rev. Thomas 
Smjthies in 1768 (^[orant's " Essex," ii., 280). 

(A 19) Yorick Smythies of Colchester, son ofWilliam Smjthies (A 17) by his 
first wife Margarita de Yatidergues, was baptized 10 February 1737 at St. Mary-at- 
the-Walls, Colchester. He died seised in etfect intestate, having made a will and 
the devisees therein having all died in his lifetime (Add. MSS. 19,149, fo. 205). 
He was buried in the Church of St. Martin, Colchester, where there is the following 
inscription : — 

13 Oct. 1824. Died Yorick Smythies, A.M. of S* John's College, Cambridge, 
Bon^ of William Smythies and Margaret de Yandergues, 54 years Rector of this

(A 22) James Smythies, son of William Smythies (A 17) by his second wife 
Elizabeth Blatch, obtained a licence to change his surname to that of Blatch.* 
This licence is " entered in the Earl Marshall's Book marked I. 32," fo. 103, and 
dated 14 March 1772. It states that " Whereas our Trusty and well beloved 
James Smythies of Colchester in our County of Essex Esq"' has by his Petition" 
asked to change his surname from Smythies to Blatch, in accordance with the will 
of Sarah Edwards, his aunt, who left him a legacy on that condition, our AVill

.... do require and command that this our concession and Declaration be accord-

James Blatch and his wife were buried in Mile End Churchyard, and over their 
grave is the following inscription : — 

" Under this stone lie the remains of James Blatch, Esq^'^ of S^ Mary's-at-the- 
Walls, Colchester, who died December 18^^ 1811, Aged 63. Also under this stone 
are deposited the remains of Elizabeth Blatch, widow of the said James Blatch, who 
departed this life October 22°^, 1815, Aged 72 years." 

Elizabeth Blatch's maiden name was Dennis (Twining Family Papers). Her 
will, dated 9 February 1812, was proved by her son James Blatch, Yicar of Basing- 
stoke, 1815 (Family Papers). 

(A 23) Charlotte Smythies, daughter of William Smythies (A 17) by his second

her son William Smythies Doyle, the inscription stating that he died 28 January 
1796, aged 23, and in the Church of All Saints, Colchester, a mural tablet records 
the death of her second son Edward Doyle. The inscription on this is somewhat

J. C. C. Smith, Esq., to Francis Smythies, Esq., of Colchester), was born 18 Oct. 
1691 and baptized at Mile End, Colciiester, 23 October following (Par. Re?.). He 
was at Sidney-Sussex Coll., Cambridge, became A.B. 1712, A.M.°1716 (Grad. Cant., 
B.M.),and Fellow of his College 1727 (Twining Family Papers). He succeeded his 
father as Rector of St. Michael's, Mile End, and was instituted to the living on 
2S March 1720 (Murant). On 1 September 1721 he was appointed also Rector of 
St. Mary Magdalen and Master of King James's Hospital, Colchester. These 
latter benefices he held till 1773, when he was succeeded by his son John. 

The first page of the Register of St. Mary Magdalen, Colchester, contains the 
Tollowing entry : — 

ctf Smythies appointed Master of the Hospital of King James alias 

Mary Magdalen Hospital, in Colchester, September 1^^ 1721, By Thomas, Lord 
(soon after) Earl of Macclesfield, Lord High Chancellor, who at his own cost and 
charges fitted up the church for Divine Service after it had been disused at least 
ever since the siege of Colchester. The expenses amounted to Fif tv-two Pounds 
SIX shillings and eleven pence halfpenny." 

The last signature in the Register of Palmer Smythies as " Hosp. Magister " is 
dated 21 December 1772. His son John succeeded him in 1773, in which year his 
signature as aster appears in the books. 

In addition to his other appointments Palmer Smythies held the position of 
Master of the Royal Grammar School, Colchester, to which post he was elected on 
20 December 1727, and held the Mastership till 1776, the year of his death, when 
he was succeeded by the Rev. Samuel Parr.

The White House estate in Witnesham was lefc to him by his grandfather William 
Smythies (see A 10, above) and at his death he left it to his Ions William, Hum- 
phrey, and George^and his daughter Anne, "equally to be divided between them," 
an arrangement which, judging from the will, does not seem to have met with the 
approval of his eldest son William (see below). A bill of costs to Ih. Palmer

The first wife of Palmer Smythies was Susan Puplefc. This is shewn by an inden- 
ture dated 2 January 1732 which " Witnessebh that the said Palmer Smythies for 
and in consideration of the great affection & Love which he beareth unto Thamar 
Smythies, widow, mother of the Palmer Smythies, and Susan, William, Humphry, 
Ann, George, Thomas, & Charles, children of the s^ Palmer Smythies by Susan his 
late wife heretofore Susan Puplet" hath grauted .... Edward Leeds and 

William Bree .... the AVhice House .... Upon this special Trust and Confidence 

nevertheless that they shall permit and suffer the aforesaid Thamar 

Smythies, mother of the Palmer Smythies, to have and receive to her own use 
and benefit the rents, issues and profits .... during the term of her nat. Life if she 
shall so long continue Sole & unnaarried," etc. 

From the date of the birch of Palmer Smythies himself and of his eldest daughter 
Susan (see A 34, below) it is clear that lie must have married his first wife about 
1719 or a Uttle earlier. Her death is recorded by a quaint inscription on a mural 
monument over the ftmiily vault in Mile End Churchyard. The wording is as follows : 
"Prudent and agreeable | modest without Affectation | sprightly with good 
Nature | the love of all that knew her | good without Ostentation | pious with 
Chearfulness | relying on the Mei-its of | a crucified Saviour | thro' him beloved of 
God I SusAX I the affectionate Wife of | Palmier Smythies | the tender Mother of 
10 I Children 7 of which survived | her. Died July the 24, 1731 | xlnd lies buried 
close up to I this W^all in the Churchyard." 

Nothing has so far been ascertained regarding her parents, but it is believed 
they belonged to Ipswich, where a street called Purplet Street still exists, and that 
they were possibly members of that colony of Huguenot refugees which at the end 
of the seventeenth and beginning of the eighteenth century settled in the eastern 

The second wife of Palmer Smythies was Elizabeth Brazier, daughter of Rev. 
John Brazier, Rector of Great Holland and Easthorp, who was a member of an old 
Essex family descending from Anthony Brazier, Rector of Ingatestone, who died 
1609-10 (Letter from J. C. C. Smith, Esq., Probate Registry, Somerset House, 
dated 30 June 1881) ; she w^as, with her two sisters, coheiress of her father (in- 
formant, J. K. Smythies her great-gi-andson in 1880). She married 1782 (see 
dates : death of 1st wife and birth of first child by 2nd wife) ; died at Colchester 
and was buried at St. Michael's, Mile End, in the family vault there. Her will 
was proved 9 January 1799. 

A small oval portrait of Palmer Smythies, painted in oils on canvas by George 
Roth in 1773, is in possession of Frank Borthwick Smythies, Esq. (B 51), and a 
copy of it, painted in oils from the original, is owned by Major Raymond Smythies 
(A 70), also a rtiniature reproduction on ivory. 

(A 32) Farley Smythies, son of William Smythies (A 15) of Mile End, and 
younger brother of Palmer Smythies, was born 18 September 1693 and baptized 
9 October following. (Add. MSS. 19,149, fo. 205.) 

(A 33) Hephzibah Smythies, daughter of William Smythies (A 15) of Mile 
End, was born 14 July 1695 and baptized 11 August following (Add. MSS. 19,149,

btreet Hall, .North House, and Martels in East Mersey, and "Lucas's" in Stisted 
parish (Morant-s " Essex," i., 430, and ii., 256-58). He was at Sidnev-Sussex 
Coll Cambridge ; became A B. 1743, A.M. 1761 (Grad. Cant., B.M.) and Fellow 
of h]s College (" Gent. Mag.," xvii., 154). He was the first member of the family 
to benefit by the purchase of the living of Alpheton bv the Rev. Tiiomas Smvthies 
his uncle Ihomas Smythies died in 1746, so also did the Rev. Sheffield Martin, 
Kector of Alpheton ; the living then became vacant for the first time since its 
purchase by Thomas Smythies, and William Smythies was appointed to succeed 
Mr. Martin but was not inducted till 25 March 1747. (Alpheton Par. Re-, 
• 'nA^^-\ '''^^ Colchester, 1759 ("Gent. Ma-!," 

XXIX., 60/), inducted 1760, and held the living till his death (Add. MSS 33 bh)

porothea Carle ton, ^ at St. Michael's, Mile End, Colchester. She died and was 
buried at^ St Peter s, Colchester, 5 September 1777 (mural tablet, left of pulpit, 
fet. Peter s, Colchester). One of the sponsors at the baptism of her daughter 
Dorothea was Christopher Carleton, who was probably her fatlier, to whom this 
L/hnstian name is ascribed with a query. 

(A 37) Catherine Smythies,* daughter of William Smythies (A 36), born 7 April 
and baptized at Alpheton 29 April 1748, her sponsors being Samuel Wi— Eliza- 
beth Smythies, and Catherine Carleton ; married 1793 (Add. MSS. 19 14^9°'fo -^05 
and Alpheton Register). Her death is thus recorded in the " Ipswich Journal,'' 
10 July 1819, and "Gent. Mag.," July 1819, p. 2 : - Monday, died after a painful 
affliction, aged 71, M^^ Catherine Smythies, da. of the late Rev^ William Smvthies, 
Kector of Alpheton in this co. and Vicar of S* Peter's, Colch." From' these 
references it would appear that Catherine Smythies married a cousin of her own 
name, but the Register at Alpheton, which for a time was very imperfectly kept, 
does not make this clear. r j ^ 

(A 38) Dorothea Smythies, daughter of William Smvthies (A 36), was born at 
Colchester 21 November 1751 and baptized at St. Mary's (at-the- Walls) there, her 
sponsors being Christopher Carleton, Ann Smythies, and Susan Smythies.

(Par. Reg. Alphetoa and Add. MSS. 19,149, fo. 205.) 

(A 41) Carleton Smythies, son of William Smythies (A 36), died without issue. 
(Add. MSS. 19,149, and information given by Elizabeth Smythies his great-niece). 

(A 42) Harriet Smythies, daughter of William Smythies (A 36), was born 
25 JSToyember 1760 and married Jacob Whittington. She made an affidavit in 
December 1830 of her pedigree from her great-grandfather William Smythies 
(A 15) of Mile End, in which a curious mistake has been made, from which it 
would appear that William Smythies (A 17), with his brothers and sisters, and 
William Smythies (A 36), with his brothers and sisters, were all children of William 
Smythies (A 15) of Mile End, who died more than two years before William 
Smythies (A 36) was born, and is shewn in the Whittington pedigree to have done so. 

It is not surprising that Mrs. Whittington, who was over 90 years of age when 
the affidavit was made, should have been bewildered by the numerous Williams, 
but it is curious that the person who drew up the pedigree should not have noticed 
so obvious an error. iVpart from this mistake the particulars regarding individuals, 
almost all of which it has been possible to check by comparison with wills, parish 
registers, etc., appear to be perfectly correct (they were no doubt taken from 
documents), but it is necessary to call special atte'ntion to the inaccuracy of this 
pedigree, as otherwise it might cause serious confusion. 

Tne tacts, as set foi'th in Pedigree are that William Smythies (A 36), who 
married Anna Dorothea Carleton, was the son by his first wife, Susan Puplet, of 
Palmer Smythies (A 31), who was the eldest brothe'r of William Smythies 17), 
who married Istly Margarita de Yandergues and 2ndly Elizabeth Blatch ; Palmer 
Smythies (A 31) and William Smythies (A 36) being the sons of William Smythies 
(A 15), who married Thamar Furley. 

(A 43) William Carleton Smythies, son of William Smythies (A 39) of Oldland 
■Hall in Oldland, co. Gloucester, in 1830, was born at New York in 1778 (Add. 
MSS. 19,149, fo. 205). He was gazetted Cornet 6th (Inniskilling) Dragoons 
18 August 1796 and was still serving in 1798, but his name disappears from the 
list of officers in 1799, and he evidently retired before marriage (Army List). He 
married, 21 March 1799, Emilia Irving, daughter of Joshua Gosselin of Guernsey, 
and of Ware, co. Hertford, Esq. She died at Bath in 1858, set. 82, and he died in 
1853. (Gosselin Pedigree, Twming and Smythies Family Papers.)

Suflblk, and Eoman Hill, near Colchester ; married Theodosia, da. of Sir Henry 
Hawley, 2nd Bart., but died without issue 17 July 1862.t He and his brother 
Thomas (A 46) were the last male descendants of William, son of Palmer Smythies, 
Rector of Mile End, by his first marriage, and both failing to leave issue, Henry 
Raymond Smythies (A 61), direct descendant of Humphrey, the other son of Palmer 
by his first marriage who left issue, became senior representative of the family. 

(A 46) Thomas Gosselin Smythies, son of William Carleton Smythies, died un-

(A 59) Henry Yeats Sniythies, son of Humphrey Smythies (A 52), whose birth 
is recorded in the South Morecon Register, was for many years Fellow of Em- 
manuel College, Cambridge, and on relinquishing the office of Bursar, which he had 
for some time held, he was presented with a silver cake-basket [now in possession of 
his grandson ^^fajor Raymond Smythies (A 70)], on which are engraved the Em- 
manuel College arms, the Smychies arms {On a field argent a chevron azure heiiceen 
- three oak-leaves vert, each charged with an acorn or), and the following inscription : 
" Magisteret Socii Coll.Enian. Henrico Yeats Smythies, S.T.B., in Bursarii munere 
obeundo Strenuo ac fideli D.D.I), mdcccx." In the previous year he had received 
preferment as Vicar of the valuable living of Stanground-cum-Farcet, co. Hunts, in 
the gift of Emmanuel College, which he held till his death. 

He married Isabella Raymond, the granddaughter of his aunt Ann Bridges 
(A 53). This formed the second link between the Smythies and Raymond families. 
A mural monument on the south wall of the chancel of Stanground Church bears 
the following inscription : — 

" Within this church are deposited the remains of the Rev'' Henry Yeats 
Smythies, B.D., formerly Fellow and Bursar of Emmanuel College in the University 
of Cambridge and thirty-three years Vicar of this Parish. He was an active magis- 
trate for the County of Huntingdon and Liberty of Peterborough, the duties of 
which office he fulfilled for many years with honor to himself and benefit to the 
public. He was born at South Moreton in the County of Berks Feb. 15, 1763, and 
died June 20^^, 1842, Leaving a Widow and Seven Children, at whose desire this 
tablet was erected in testimony of their respect for his integrity of character and 
gratitude for his affectionate kindness as a Husband and Parent. Isabella, Relict 
of the above, died September 8^^, 1858, aged 74. years, and lies buried at Woking 
in the County of Surrey."

a half-length portrait of Isabella his wife (30 in. by 25 in.) by John Simpson* are 
now in possession of their grandson Major Raymond Smythies (A 70). 

The pedigree of Isabella Raymond, wife (and first-cousin once removed) of 
Henry Yeats Smythies, is recorded in Burke's " Landed Gentry," Burke's " Royal 
Descents," Ruvigny's " Plantagenet Roll of the Blood Royal " (Mortimer-Percy 
Volume, Part I.), etc. 

(A 60) Catherine Smythies, married William Brewster, Esq. (See this and 
Brewster pedigree.) 

(A 61) Margaretta Smythies, married John Greene, Esq., elder brother of Ed- 
ward Greene, Esq., who married her sister Emily (A 67). They lived at "Abbey 
Ruins," Bury St. Edmunds. "The Panels" was bought by their son John 
Smythies Greene in 1874. Fanny, daughter of John Greene and Margaretta 
Smythies, married as his 2nd wife Rev. Oliver Raymond, Rector of Middleton, 
nephew of her grandparents (A 59), and so formed a third link between the 
Smythies and Raymond families. (See A 53 and A 59, above.)

* John Simpson, portrait painter, was born in Loudon in 1782, and for many years was 
assistant to Sir Thomas Lawrence. In 1834 he went to Lisbon, and was appoiuted painter to 
the Queen of Portn^'al, but returned to England and died in London in 1847. He painted 
portraits of many distinguished people ; one of the Duke of Brunswick is at Windsor Castle, 



oldest families in Suffolk, and has an unbroken pedigree of ancestors livincr in that 
countj from the time of Eichard Heigham, who died in 1340. (See'^Burke's 
Landed Gentry," etc.) 

(A 65) Julia Smythies, married John Vise Kelly, Esq. (see this and Kelly 
pedigree). A half-length portrait of her in oils on canvas (24 in, by 20 in ) is in 
possession of her nephew Major Raymond Smythies (A 70). 

(A 66) Walter Tyson Smythies, son of H. Y. Smythies (A 59), married (but 
had no issue) Anne Rycroft Raymond, his mother's niece. This foi-med a fourth 
link between the Smythies and Raymond families. (See A 53, 59, and 61, above.) 

(A 67) Emily Smythies, married Edward Greene, Esq. (see A 61), who survived 
his wife and married secondly Caroline Dorothea, widow of Admii-al Sir William 
Hoste, Bart., and daughter of Charles Prideaux Brnne of Prideaux Place, co. Corn- 
wall, Esq. Emily Greene left a son Edward Walter Greene (created a Baronet 
1901) and four* daughters. Portraits in oils on canvas {circa 30 by 25) of Edward 
Greene and Emily his wife, by John Simpson, are in possession of Sir E. AYaker 
Greene their son. 

(A 68). See pedigree (p, 200). 

(A 69) Raymond Brewster Smythies, son of H. Y. Smythies (A 59), and the 
only son to have issue, had one son (see A 70, below). 

A half-length portrait in oils on canvas (24 in. by 20 in.) of Raymoijd Brewster 
Smythies (artist not known) and a miniature on ivory, by Nina Hardv, of Isabella 
his wife, are in possession of their son Major Raymond Smythies (A 70). 

A portion of the pedigree of Isabella Jane Anstey, wife of Raymond Brewster 
Smythies, is recorded in Ruvigny's " Plantagenet Roll of the Blood Royal " 
(Mortimer-Percy Volume, Essex Supplement). This shews her descent from 
Christopher Anstey the poetf and Ann Calvert (see Verney in Burke's "Peerao-e 
and Baronetage") her great-grandparents. The father of Christopher Anstey 
the poet was the Rev. Christopher Anstey, D.D. (who married Elizabeth 
daughter of Anthony Thompson, M.P. for Cambridge in 1702), and his father was 
William Anstey, who was living and married in 1706 to Elinor Revnolds. Christo- 
pher Anstey the poet had a country seat and fine property at Trumpington, near 
Cambridge, but this was sold by his grandson Christopher (uncle of Isabella' Jane 
Smythies), who died unmarried. A fairly full account of Christopher Anstey the 
po'et, and some references to his father, are contained in " The General Biographical 
Dictionary," by Alexander Chalmers, F.S.A. (London, 1812), ''The Dictionary of 
National Biography," etc. He was granted a mural monument in Poets' Corner, 
W^estminster Abbey. 

(A 70) Raymond Henry Raymond Smythies, son of R. B. Smythies (A 69), 
became, on the death of his uncle Henry Raymond Smvthies (A 64) in 1888, the 
only living male descendant of Palmer Smythies (A 31) by his first marria<^e 1 
three-quarter length portrait of R. H. Raymond Smythies (38f by 26i) in oils on

History of Monmmitli shire. Vol. II., Part 1. By Colonel J. k. Brad^tey, C.B., F.S.A. 
London : Mitchell Hughes and Clarke. Price £2 2s. 
This instalment of Colooel Bradney's monumental work continues to uphold the high place the 
first Volume has already taken, reflecting the highest credit on the careful research and ability 
of the Author. 

This Part deals with Hundred of Raglan, which includes the parishes of Raglan, Llan- 
denny, Dingestow, Tregaer, Penrhos, Bryngwyn, Bettws Xewydd, Clytha, and Pare Grace Dieu. 
It is curious to notice in connection with this Hundred of Raglan, consisting of about 18,341 
acres, with a rateable value of about £19,166, that the population should remain so stationary, 
being in ISOl about 2,290 and in 1901, 2,200. 

The genealogical portion of the work is of the highest standard, and contains pedigrees of 
the following families : Barry, Boothby, Bosanquet, Clarke, Crowe, Davies, Evans, Frampton, 
Hardwick, Herbert, Earls of Pembroke, Herbert of Clytha, Jenkins, Jones, Lewis, Meakings, 
Milborne, Jtorgan, Gates, Phillips, Pritchard, Robert, Scudamore, Seys, Somerset of Pauntley, 
Somerset, Earls and Marquises of Worcester, Watkins, and Williams. These pedigrees have the 
great merit of having been checked from every available source, and are therefore to be relied 
upon for their correctness. 

It is natural that the parish of Raglan, containing the castle of Raglan, in which is bound 
up the families of the Herberts and Somersets, should take up a third of the book. Colonel 
Bradney has dealt very carefully and fully with this subject. The account of the first Marquis 
of Worcester and the magnificence of the state observed in the mode of living in the castle 
is very interesting. The visits of King Charles I. to Raglan during the Civil War and the 
particulars of the siege of the castle are full of interest. The amount that the Marquis of 
Worcester in his loyalty to King Charles expended on the King and his cause is immense, 
amounting to over £1,000,000. 

The Author fully describes the churches of each parish, with their monuments, together 
with the rise and development of the Nonconformist bodies. The history of the manors, old 
houses and buildings receive the same careful attention, amongst which may be noted those of 
Dingestow or Llanddingat Castle, Dingestow Court; Cefn Tilla and Tre-Worgan in Llandenny, 
Artha and Llwyn-y-Gaer in Tregaer. 

Many interesting documents are printed in extenso, which throw much light on the history 
of the period with which they deal. 



Special mention must be made of the 21 excellent illustrations of castles, houses, and other 
buildings, which have been reproduced from original drawings, making a feature of great 
attractiveness. In addition there are various plans, and a map of the Hundred.

defence of the Frontiers of Virginia, 1756, which is interesting. The Randolph Manuscript is 
continued with a Copy of Instructions to Lord Culpeper, 1682 ; also " Miscellaneous Colonial 
Documents" from the Virginia State Archives, and "Revolutionary Army Records." In 
genealogy there are items on the Brent, Brooke, Chiles, and Poindexter families. In Virginia

John Dixon of Bristol, 1758, with genealogical notes thereto ; Philip Ludwell, late of Virginia, 
now of City of Westminster, 1767; Edward Creffield, junior, London, 1694 ; and Thomas

The Suirville Hewetsoxs (Hewsoms), Kilkenny branch, had for eponym— 

c. Francis Hewetson (?ie Hewson), Esq., Captain 62nd Regiment, born in 
1763, was residing at Oak Kile or Oak Hill, Waterford co., in 1792. When 
Lieutenant of the 17th Regiment he was quartered in New Ross in 1791 ; was 
named in his graudfacher's will ; died in the West Indies 1798, aged 35 years, 
soon after having been gazetted Captain. In 1793 he married, by licence in 

Kilkenny, Mary (born 1749), daughter of the Rev Collier, D.D., Rector of 

Kosbercon, co. Kilkenny. She died at Waterford 9 April 1851, aged 102 years, 
and was buried m the churchyard of Saint John, Waterford (the church havint^ 
been founded by John, Earl of Morton, 1185), where also lie three of her 
daughters. By her will, dated 12 September 1848 (proved 26 June 1851 by the 
principal legatee, no executors having been appointed to supply the place of the 
deceased executrix, and the residuary legatee being deceased), she desired to be 
buried in the churchyard of St. John. She bequeathed ail her property to her 
friends the Rev. John Lymbery of Drumrock and Bartholomew Delandre, Esq., 
of Waterford, m trust as to two-thirds thereof for the use of her daughter 
Rebecca Hewetson otherwise Delandre, the wife of Edm^?nd Delandre of Waterlbrd, 
and also for the use of the said Edmond Delandre during their lives, afterwards 
for her grandchildren Margaret, Sarah, and William Figg. The remainino- one- 
third she bequeathed to her grandchild Margaret Figg, which upon her decease 
was to go to her sister Sarah Figg. Tlie " trifling articles of household furniture 
and plate were to be divided equally between her daughter Margaret Delandre 
and grandchild Margaret Figg. As she had already provided for her daughter 
Catherine Hewetson upon her marriage with the late John Sawyer, she left her 
one shilling. She appointed her daugliter Rebecca Delandre her executrix and 
residuary legatee. The issue of this marriage was four daughters :— 

1. Catherine Hewetson, born at Ross, co. Wexford, 1794, died 27 April 1868, 
aged 74, and interred in Drumcannon churchyard, Tramore, co. Waterford. She 
was, on 24 November 1813, married (by licence) to John Sawyer, Esq., of the 
CityoMUterford, who died in 1832, and was buried with his intimate friend 
Colonel St. Ledger, near Dunmore. With others, they bad Francis John Sawyer, 
born 1832 ; and Sarah Sawyer, born in 1830, living at the Cove, Tramore, un- 
married, where she died 11 July 1899. 

2. Mai-garet Hewetson, born 1795 ; was married in 1820 to Captain William 
l^igg, R.N. She died in 1833, leavnig two daughters and a son, living in 
Ivm' William Figg, all legatees under their grandmother's 

3. Sarah Hewetson, born at Suirville in 1796 ; buried 4 September 1848 in 
the Manor, Waterford. i 

4. Rebecca Hewetson, born 1797, died February 1849 and was buried on 
27 l!ebruary in St. John, the Manor, AVaterford. In 1832 she was married to 
Ldmond Delandre, Esq., of Waterford, who was buried on 2 May 1856, a^ed 64. 
ihey were both legatees under the will of her mother, and upon their decease, 
not having had issue, their nieces and nephew Figg enjoyed the bequest. 

Captain Francis Hewetson (c, above), living at Oak Kile or Oak Hill in 
1/92, by deed of 25 March of that year, leased from his brother-in-law Arthur 

* Communicated by John Hewetson, Esq.— concluded from p. 299. 




Ussher, Esq., of Caraphire, that part of Campliire and Oak Kile or Oak Hill, 
lately in the possession of Michael and Patrick Keefe, together with the broom- 
field and orchard, lately in the possession of Mrs. i\[orrisy, situated in the parish 
of Lisraore, co. Waterford, with privilege to the said Francis Hewetson of erecting 
and building a salmon weir on the river Bride for the term of his natural life and 
that of his wife Mary Collier and Richard Gumbleton (eldest son of Richard), or 
the longest liver of them, with the term of thirty-one years after the said lives 
were ended, paying yearly fifty-nine pounds exclusive of taxes, etc. 

D. Robert Hewetson (Rev.), one of the two most remarkable of this branch of 
the family (the other being his father), who was born and lived in rebellion times, 
and then passed some thirty years in the "West Indies, where his experiences were 
most varied, the relation of some of which I may condense, seeing that the person- 
ages concerned have long ago departed to the Elysian Fields. He was the prototype 
of his father the Rev. John of Suirville, in generosity, justice, bravery, untiring 
energy and loyalty : whilst as to his personality, the accompanying photograph 
of an ivory miniature will speak. The painting was executed after he left Col- 
lege and before he took Holy Orders in 1796. He was born 2 June 1764 in the 
City of Waterford ; entered Trinity College, Dublin, in 1782 (4 November), 
aged 18, took his B.A. on 20 February 1787, as " Robert Hewson," and pro- 
ceeded M.A. After leaving College he made the grand tour," and travelled to 
the West Indies for the recovery of his health, and on 1 April 1790, being then 
in his twenty-sixth year, he married his first wife in the Island of Antigua, 
West Indies, viz., Sarah Gilliad Thomas, second daughter and coheir of Henry 
. Thomas, Esq., of St. John, Antigua, and Sarah his wife {experiencia jirima). 
In 1791 they were in Ireland, he intending to take Orders, but did not do so 
until five years after, and remained there about a year, when they returned to 
St. John, Antigua. At the end of 1793 the British Ministers sent an armament 
to the West Indies to dislodge the French from every one of their possessions in 
that part of the world, and troops were landed on 5th and 6th February 1794 
under General Sir Charles Grey, Bart., at Trois Rivieres. To assist in the 
reduction of this Island and Guadaloupe the Antiguans sent a complement of 
men and negro slaves, and Mr. Hewetson at his own private expense served as a 
Volunteer Officer in H.M. 64tli Regiment, without claiming or partaking of any 
share of pay, prize-money, or compensation. He conducted a forlorn-hope attack 
upon a fort with success, but with the loss of two-thirds of the party and the 
rest wounded, he himself receiving a bayonet-wound in the breast, the scar of 
which he carried to the p^rave. The conquest was completed in seven weeks, and 
on 25 March 1794 the French colours were struck and the British hoisted. Two 
stands of colours were presented to His then Majesty, who ordered them to be 
hung up in St. Paul's Cathedral, London. 

In the following year, September finds him again domiciled in the old parson- 
age at Suirville, where he resided for the next three years, in the last of which 
(1798) his father deceased. In October 1796, having provided letters testimonial 
signed by James Lindsey, Rector of St. John, Antigua, James CouU of St. George, 
and Theo. Xugent of St. Philip, and also by John Hewetson, Rector of Aglish, 
Daniel Cuffe of Kilmacow, and Will. Denis of Kilculliheen, he was admitted into 
the order of Deacon on 18 October 1796, and into that of Priest on 8 October 
1797. In this latter year he was appointed Justice of the Peace for the county 
of Waterford by the Marquis of Camden, which appointment he held for three 
years, at the imminent peril of his life. A year after (1798) he was honoured 
with the sinecure Vicarage of Kilbarrymeadon, Waterford, of the value of one 
or two hundred pounds per annum, by the Right Reverend Richard Marl ay, 
Bishop of Waterford and Lismore, out of respect for his father. His zealous 
exertions as a Magistrate during the Rebellion of 1798 raised against him a host 
of rebel enemies, who offered a reward of fifty pounds for his head, fired at him 
whilst performing Divine Service in the parish church of Kilmacthomas for his 



brother James, in his own house, and repeatedly in the execution of his various 
duties, public and private. One of the effects of the rebellion was the stoppage 
of Banking Houses, and that of "Newport " in Waterford City caused to him a 
loss of fifteen hundred pounds. 

He held his benefice until, in consequence of his perilous situation, he was 
obliged to abandon his clerical and private interests in Ireland, and so he, together 
with his wife, returned to the West Indies, where in 1808 he purchased an estate 
in the Dutch part of the Island of Sc. Martin, consiscing of a house and seventy 
acres of land adjoining. In his diary lie mentions that it cost £4,234, 
additions to the lionse £581, and furniture £866. He also says that debts due 
to him in the Dutch quai'ter of St. ^fartin amounted to £750, and in the French 
£165. Three years after his purchase another unwelcome experience occurred, 
for, on the appointment of Louis Bonaparte (brother of Jerome Bonaparte, who 
married Elizabeth Patterson, see f, ante^ page 297) to the throne of Holland on 
6 June 1806, and his refusing to take the oath of allegiance to him and 
abjure his Sovereign, the above estate and other property, to the value of 
£10,000, was entirely confiscated by the Dutch Government as "Alien proprietor.'* 
His last official act in the French quarter of the Island is recorded thus : 
10 March 1807. Grove Estate, Fiench quarter, St. Martin. Baptized Anne 
Iveid and Susan Sarah (twins), daughters of Nathaniel Calvert, Esq., and Anne 
his lawful wife. During this year a disastrous fire destroyed one half of the 
town of Port of Spain and consumed property belonging to Mr. Hewetson to the 
extent of £2,000. 

On 16 April following, he, together with Iiis family, arrived at St. George's, 
Grenada, from St. Mnrtin, at the cost of sixty joes, and on the 23rd took posses- 
sion of the parsonage at Charlotte Town, whilst on the 24th he was inducted to 
his livings of St. John and St. Mark, the presentation being made by the 
Governor-General Frederick Maitland, who was paid £16 16.s. for induction fees. 
On this day he hired " Kate," Mrs. Scott's slave, at eight dollars a month from 
the 21st. On the 27th Mrs. Hewetson arrived at the Parsonage from St. George, 
and a free black, " Colebrook," was hired at five dollars a month with six bitts 
allowance per week. The following is an interesting record of a visit made on 
8 August to a pare of the estate of Alexander Eraser, Esq., the Hermitage" in 
Grenada, in company witli Governor-General Maitland, Captain G. Waller of the 
Royal Engineers, Captain Rowan of the . . Regiment, and Mr. Eraser, where he 
saw a Memphitic Spring (of the same deleterious quality as the G-rotto del Cane 
in Italy) kill a pig and full-grown duck, the latter in two seconds and the 
former in two and a half, the scent issuing from a fissure and the strongest 
ebullition of water heard underground, the water as cold as ice. An open spring 
apparently boiled with excessive violence near the above fissure being cold in the 

Looking over his Parish Register of Burials on 7 October 1807 he came 
across a reminder of Ii-eland and of a relation of his mother (Catherine Drew) 
by the following entry: ''Lieut.-CoU John G-odfrey Drew of the S'"^ West 1. 
Regiment, died at Charlotte Town on the 26 February 1801, and was interred 
in the churchyard of said place the same date by the Rev. John M'^Fair." 

In the summer of this year he went out in "Cadette's " canoe to the Isle de 
Ronde and spent two days there in shooting ducks, and two days after (Sunday) 
he christened thirty slaves, and leaving in the afternoon for Carriacou arrived 
there the same night — most inhospitably received by tiie Rev. William Nash, 
Rector, whose house he left in the morning, preferring to breakfast with Cadette's 
brother, a coloui-ed man. Expense of journey £9 15s. currency. 

An extraordinary act of his benevolence is shewn by the following : 14 Nov. 
1807. Paid twenty-seven joes (£90) cash for two plover and preventing the 
murder of Mr. Joseph Muiray by William Diggin, Manager of the Springs 
Estate, Grenada, a native of Vinegar Hill, Wexford, Ireland, and the third 
attempt of his in Grenada, where he was imprisoned only once.

Ireland, to take up the curacy of " Island Ma|ee." On 7 Septembe^of this yea; 
his second son James Christopher was born a1 Carrickfergus! s^me cou v S 


Mr. Hewetson again began to turn his thoughts to ihe West Indies, where he 
had property of four thousand pounds in Antigua, in right of his first wife, as 
also property and debts of liis own of some ten thousand pounds, which required 
his personal attention ; so he and his family embarked at Belfast on board the 
" Golden Fleece," 20 December 1815, and arrived at Port of Spain, Trinidad, at 
the end of ]\Iarch 181G. In April following he established a Seminary in Port of 
Spain, the licence for which the Governor and Commander-in-Chief and Vice- 
Admiral Sir Ralph James Woodford, Bart., presented to him gratis, " he being 
enjoyned to educate and instruct his pupils in the true knowledge and 
principles of the Christian religion, and to pay the most scrupulous attention to 
their morals and behaviour." In June, October, and December he baptized 165 
slaves on the following estates : Brecon Castle, Camden, Exchange, Enterprise, 
Friendship, Lodge, Mount Annon, Xorth Esperanza, Northumberland, North 
Union, Orange Valley, Perseverance, Providence, Phoenix Park, Surprise, Savilla, 
and Union. 

In this year he joined the other arm of the Service, and on 25 September 
was appointed to tiie Chaplaincy of the Garrison of Trinidad by His Excellency 
Lieut.-General Sir James Leith, Commander-in-Chief of the Forces in the Wind- 
ward Islands, at fourteen shillings and three pence sterling per day and a soldier 

The new year of 1817 commenced auspiciously by the advent of his third and 
last son Robert Dixon Hewetson, who was born at 10 a.:m:. the 15th Jan. 1817 at 
Port of Spain, Trinidad ; entered the Clergy Orphan School, St. John's Wood, 
London, in 1828, where he was educated' under tlie Rev. Thomas Wharton, 
Master, revered by his pupils and most highly esteemed. He died 30 September 
1888, in his 72nd''year. Will dated 17 November 1S63. He married, 4 July 
1841, Anne (born 5 December 1819, died 31 May 1895), daughter of John Joy of 
the county of Huntingdon, by whom he had three sons and two daughters ; the 
eldest was John Hewetson of London, born 27 June 1845 ; living in Paris, 
Western France, and Brussels in 1881-2-4 ; the family genealogist ; Author in 
1901 of "Memoirs of the House of Hewetson or Hewson in Ireland"; the 
" Hewsons of Finuge, Kerry "; the Cromwellian " Colonel John Huson (Hew- 
son) " of a Kentish origin ; and writer of the present article. 

Seven months after the birth of his son Robert Dixon Hewetson, his second 
wife Elizabeth died in Port of Spain, Trinidad, on the 26th evening of August 
1817 (having been born 30 November 1783), in her 34th year, and was buried 
the following morning at half-past nine in Lapeyrouse Cemetery. A fortnight 
afterwards he baptized a nephcAv, James, son of Christopher Hewetson, Esq., of 
Felicity Hall. Yet again, wi'th the advent of the new year, turns life's kaleido- 
scope, and on 1 January 1818 liis second son Janie., Christopher died at Port of 
Spain, in his fourth year, bringing us to the close of West Indian life, and in his 
Diary made the following entry : — 

" 25 June 1819, sailed from Trinidad with my two children William Frank 
and Robert Dixon, then aged 6 and 2^ years, on board the ship 'John Bush- 
man,' bound for London, John Gauntlet, ^Master ; arrived the 10-^ August, after 
a tedious and unpleasant passage, at the expense of One hundred pounds 

In 1820 he was in correspondence with the celebrated Wilberforce of " Slave 
emancipation fame," and visited him at Brompton Grove, London. At the end 
of this year he was again on his way to visit his relations in Ireland, and on his 
way thence via Bristol and Milford," called at Tenby, where he made the following 
entry in his Diary • " Observations on a fireside at Tenby. That a great im- 
provement may be made by giving a rotary motion to all parlour and chamber 
fires by a very slow movement on an axis continually bright, without cinders or 
ashes appearing in front, and supplied invisibly, without fire-irons and the 
attendant overflow of ashes, etc., and applicable to small families, and for culinary

APPENDIX ii.-iieiurn of Baml)urslj. 

The descents of the younger branches of this family are practically insoluble. 
Ihere wei;e several related Nicholas Lewens all contemporaries, and without 
further evidence it is difficult to disentangle the various notices preserved, and to 
say which relate to which. 

I. Nicholas Lewen occurs as sometime of Seaton Delaval, and in 1683 of 
iiink House m the township of Newsham, gentleman. He married (bond at 

l^urham dated 28 August) at Earsdon, 31 August 1680, Elizabeth, da. of 

iiaidler and widow of William Grey of Seaton Delaval [whom she had married at 
tosdon 24 June 1679, and who was buried there 8 April 1680 (Earsdon P.R.)]. 
bhe may be identical with the Mrs. Elizabeth Lewens buried at Bamburgh 
27 December 1716. This Nicholas Lewex had a son Thomas LewEx\, baptized 
at Earsdon 26 December 1681, who was buried at Earsdon 6 March 1682-3, his 
father Nicholas then living at Linkhouse (Earsdon P.R.). 

II. The administration of the estate of Johx Lewen of Warkworth, gent, [who 
was buried there 30 November 1685], was granted at Durham in 1686 to his 
pother Nicholas Lewen of Alnwick,* gent., John Salkeld of Alnwick, gent., and 
VYilliam Wilson of Hadston, yeoman, being sureties. 

III. Nicholas Lewen was a sponsor (with Mathew White and ^^Irs. Mary 
Fenwick) at the baptism of Nicholas, son of Mr. Nicholas Fenwick, at St. Andrew's 
Newcastle, 11 August 1698. This is probably the Nicholas Lewen of Wolsin^r-' 
ton, gent., who was party to a bond at Durham 29 September 1702 for his proposed 
marriage to Isabel Wilkinson, spinster, with direction to Newburn and St. John's, 
Newcastle._ The marriage does not occur in the register of either parish. A John 
Lewen paid hearth-tax upon four chimneys at Wolsington or South Dissington in 
1675 (P.R.O., Lay Subsidy Rolls, 158/110). Newburn parish register has,' by the 
kind permission of Canon Nowell, been examined, but the name does not occur 

IV. Nicholas LEWENf of Bamburgh, gent., was buried there 9 December 1719 
He made his will 26 November 1719 (proved P.O. Durham 1720), and appointed 
Ihomas Wood of Burton and John Davison of Warkworth Barns trustees. In it 
he mentioned— - 

(a) His cousin John Lewen of Alnmouth, upon whom he settled his property 
at Warkworth. John Lewen is probably the John, son of Thomas 
, LewenJ of Birling, who was baptized at" Warkworth 30 September 

1698. He married at Eglingham, 12 July 1720, Ann, da. of 

Muschamp, and died the same year, being buried at Bamburgh 
7 October 1720. Administration of his estate was granted P.O. Dur- 
ham to his widow Ann on 10 October 1720, her sureties being John 

* Kev. B. R. Mangin writes, 21 March 1910, there are no Lewens in Alnwick Eej'ister of 
Daptisms, burials, and marriages, 1676 to 1706. 

t This Nicholas Lewea also mentions in his will his cousin John Laidler of Newcastle an 
apprentice, and his cousin Matthew Laidler of the " Fryar^" under age. These relationships 
suggest that this Nicholas was a son of the Nicholas first mentioned above, and of his wife 
Elizabeth Laidler. 

X Thomas Lewen is probably identical with the Thomas Lewen of Acton in the parish of 
Jt^elton, gent., who married (bond at Durham dated 9 April 1697, John Mitford of Durham gent 
bondsman) at Warkworth, 11 April 1697, Ann, daughter of George Nesbit of Birling. Admiuis- 
tratjon of the estate of Thomas Lewen of Alnmouth was granted, P.C. Durham, to his widow 
Anne, 4 May 1703, Edward Valentine of Warkworth, yeoman, and Thomas Brown of Alnmouth 
yeoman, being sureties. A bond was issued at Durham, dated 4 November 1703, for the 
marriage of Anne Lewen, widow, to William Soulsby of Alnmouth, master mariner. This mar- 

^^S^I^'U-?^^ ^^"^^^ ^^^^ P^^^^- She eventually remarried at Lesburj, 31 Januarv 

I7O0-6, Wiluam Eeeveley of Hartlepool 




Errington and John Robson. His only child, John Lewex, was born 
posthumous and baptized at Bamburgh 17 April 1721 and buried there 
11 January 1722-3. Ann Lewen* the widow remarried (bond at 
Durham dated 5 October 1724, John Errington of Bamburgh, gent., 
being bondsman) at Bamburgh, 6 October 1724, Nicholas Bowman 
of The Friai-s in the parish of Bamburgh, and had issue. 

(b) Jane,t sister of Johx Lewen last mentioned above, who was underage 

in 1719, and who presumably died unmarried, as the Warkworth 
property passed to — 

(c) Margaret, wife of Thomas Dawson of Warkworth, upon whom Nicholas 

Lewen settled his property in remainder, and who succeeded as eventual 
heiress of this branch of the family. She is described as " aunt and 
heir-at-law of John Lewin " of Alnmouth, deceased, in a lease and 
release dated 8 and 9 October 1762 (Title to " Sun Inn " at Warkworth 
quoted in " History of Northumberland," vol. v., p. 160). She married 
as "Margaret Lewen, spinster" (bond at Durham dated 27 June), 
14 July 1709, at Warkworth, Thomas Dawson of that place, gent., who 
was buried at Warkworth 12 June 1726. She was buried there 
28 December 1760, leaving issue. 

A conjecture may be hazarded that Thomas Lewen of Acton and Margaret 
Lewen, afterwards Dawson, were 'brother and sister of a Lillias Lewen who was 
baptized at Long Houghton 20 March 1683-4 [and query buried at Warkworth 
12 July 1685] as daughter of John Lewen. If so, it is further probable that this 
John is one of the cousins who brought the suit against Thomas Lewen of Amble 
in 1685, whilst the John Lewen who heads the pedigree Appendix I. is probably 
the other cousin John, party to the same suit.

Pedigree B. — The Smythies of Essex and Suffolk, 
Descended from Palmer Smythies and Elizabeth, ne'e Brazier, his second wife. 

(B 1) John Smythies of Colchester, son of Palmer Smythies (A 31). The 
Rev. Robert Bashford, Master of King James' Hospital, Colchester, writing 
26 March 1903, says : " Ail his successors .... owe to the Mr. Smythies, Master 
in 1805, a debt of gratitude for his plucky and successful law-suit on behalf of the 
Master's income and statutory obligations. The present hospital dates from 
King James 1st reign, and orij^inally it was a leper hospital, founded by Count 
Eudo de Dapifer in the reign of Henry 1st." 

Two identical portraits of John Smythies, painted in oils (artist not known), 
are in existence, one the property of his great-grandson Mr. Arthur Smythies, and 
the other of his great-great-granddaughtei- Miss Mary Peachey. 

♦ She may have married for a third time at Bamburgh, 16 February '1734-5, John Dodds.
